Barefoot Concerts presents Quaver: New and Old music for 4 viols.
Barefoot Chamber Concerts continues its mission to help you start the weekend right. This Friday evening concert series is committed to musical excellence without the formality of the conventional concert setting. Concerts start at 6 p.m. and last 60-75 minutes without intermission. Light refreshments are available, and there will be ample time to move on to other evening entertainments.
On Friday March 19, 2010, Barefoot will present Quaver (Marie Dalby, Brady Lanier, Loren Ludwig and Tobi Szuts, viols) playing "Yesterdays Tomorrow", a program of new and old music.
This dynamic new ensemble is committed to playing exciting music - new and old - in ways that engage the eclectic sensibilities of the iPod era. Their concerts bring together music ranging from Petrucci to Purcell, and from Shostakovich to Vampire Weekend. Quaver draws on the traditional viol consort to reunite polyphony's rich musical heritage with the present: seventeenth-century pavans and fantasias are paired with recent polyphonic music from performers such as the rock band Radiohead, the electronica ensemble Ratatat, and the composers Gyorgy Ligeti and Martha Bishop. Quaver appeals to audiences as diverse as their music, appearing in concert halls, coffee shops, clubs and art galleries.
This is not your parent's viol consort. As the Viola da Gamba Society of America put it, "this group is going to set the viol world on fire."
