The 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare is triggering all kinds of activities around the world in 2016. The first to hit the Milwaukee classical scene was a friendly, charming concert by The Baltimore Consort on Saturday evening (Feb. 13) at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, part of the Early Music Now series.
The Baltimore Consort, founded in 1980, appeared at St. Paul's Episcopal Church on Saturday as part of the Early Music Now series, performing a delightfully animated program of music tied to the plays of William Shakespeare.
In “Perpetual Motion: Galileo and his Revolutions,” the New York-based ensemble Galileo’s Daughters played Baroque music for soprano, lute and viola da gamba and paired it up with cutting-edge video animation by musician and videographer Marc Wagnon, who used footage shot by the Hubble telescope as well as his own photography of celestial landscapes and majestic cloudscapes.
The Boston Early Music Festival traveled light for its latest concert at the Morgan Library & Museum on Friday evening, The program, “For Two Lutes,” offered just two performers playing easily portable instruments: the stellar and widely recorded lutenists Paul O’Dette (an artistic director of the festival) and Ronn McFarlane.
