Samuel Breene (baroque violin) and Jeffrey Noonan (theorbo, baroque guitar) make up Musicke’s Cordes, who will join us in Crestone at Shumei International Institute this Sunday October 1st at 3pm. There is a $10 suggested donation at the door. Musicke’s Cordes presents an intimate concert of early Baroque music for violin by composer/performers working in Germany in the 17thcentury. Fascinated by the musical revolution taking place in Italy, German nobles and musicians imported books, instruments and players in an attempt to stay up-to-date. The program features examples of Italian musical experiments including improvisatory sonatas and toe-tapping dances as well as German imitations of the Italian style. The duo performs on reproductions of historical instruments and the program will include solos for the baroque guitar and theorbo (a six-foot-long lute) as well as music for the baroque violin.
