We’re kicking off 2013 with a program dedicated to one of the most important years in Baroque music history – 1685!
Friday through Sunday, January 11 – 13, we’re partnering with the Twin Cities Lute Co-op to present the Twin Cities Baroque Festival, a mini-festival celebrating the Baroque’s most auspicious birth year – 1685, the year of Bach, Handel, and Scarlatti. However! – our festival is not just about what these giant composers created – but rather what created them! Glorious Revolution Baroque and Terzetti Lute Duo present concerts exploring the conditions that paved the way for the late Baroque’s iconic class of 1685.
With guest artists Angela Grundstad and Kim Sueoka, sopranos; Clara Osowski and Linda Kachelmeier, mezzosopranos; Brian Link, countertenor; tenors Nicholas Chalmers and Andrew Kane; and bass-baritone Jon Ten Brink; baroque violinist Jin Kim and baroque violist Jennifer Kalika, Glorious Revolution’s 1685 concert presents works composed or published in 1685 by Purcell, Lully, Charpentier, and Corelli!
