Wildcat Viols play Purcell Fantazies for 3 and 4 viols
Barefoot Chamber Concerts continues its mission to throw the fun back in classical chamber music. As part of the 2010 Berkeley Festival and Exposition (BFX 10), Barefoot is proud to be able to present the East Bay's own Wildcat Viols (Joanna Blendulf, Julie Jeffrey, and Elisabeth Reed) with guest artist Annalisa Pappano, in a program of music for 3 and 4 viols by Henry Purcell. Written when the long and glorious tradition of English consort music was effectively over, these pieces represent the swan song of the genre. They combine the counterpoint and formality of the ancient style with the innovative and daring harmonic lanuage of what was to become Baroque music as we know it. The concert is in Barefoot's usual fabulous acoustic, the wooden Parish Hall of St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Berkeley. This will provide a superb setting for an unforgettable sound. This is a one of a kind concert.Barefoot is committed to presenting great music in an informal setting. The concert will start at 12 noon and last about 45 minutes without intermission. You are encouraged to bring your lunch, as long as it is well behaved and reasonably quiet. For more details, go to www.barefootchamberconcerts.com.
