Austin Baroque Orchestra presents "Live [Baroque] Music Capital(s) of the World"
Northwestern State University - Magale Recital Hall
Natchitoches, LA
Share this event:

Austin, Texas, is known as the "Live Music Capital of the World," but in the baroque era, no one city could make such a claim. Live music was everywhere, and nearly every royal court or major city had at least a small contingent of musicians, if not a full-blown orchestra, opera company, and church music. Though music of all types was indeed widespread, the musical establishments of some European capitals loomed over that of the others, and thanks to the plethora of music being written and performed there could rightfully be thought of as musical "capitals."

Austin's own period-instrument orchestra will take you on a tour of some of the most important musical centers of the 18th century, from Vivaldi's Venice to Handel's London, and from Bach's Leipzig to Rameau's Paris. Add to that works from Jerúsalem, Albinoni, and Boyce, performed on replicas of 18th-century instruments, and you'll readily understand why the baroque era is so often thought of as one of the "Golden Ages" of Western music!

NSU & LSMSA Students, Faculty, & Staff admitted free of charge with valid ID.
