Gypsy Fever from Campfire to Court
Reynolds Hall, Christ Church Cathedral,
1117 Texas Ave.
Revel in a high-energy concert with Red Priest as its
superbly virtuosic and zany artists make a case for
connections between gypsy musicians and master
composers of the 17th and 18th centuries. Were
Baroque masters inspired by stunning improvisational
skills of the traveling gypsies, or did the
gypsies embrace the dazzling new instrumental
techniques developed in court and church music?
Hear Eastern European folk influences in the music
of Telemann, Biber and Byrd, and discover the
Uhrovska Collection of gypsy dance tunes from 1730!
Sponsored by the Music Dept. of Christ Church Cathedral

DARK HORSE CONSORT
TOWER MUSIC OF THE STADTPFEIFER
Christ the King Lutheran Church

Inspired by the Roman bronze horse statues in St.
Marks Basilica, the aptly named Dark Horse
Consort is dedicated to unearthing the majestic late
Renaissance and early Baroque repertoire for brass
instruments. German Municipal Bands, or
Stadtpfeifer, from this part of musical history played
for major civic events and kept the hours performing
in the tower in the city center. This program
features the works of composers Samuel Scheidt,
Andreas Hammerschmidt and Johann Rosenmüller,
played on cornetti, period trombones, recorders,
harpsichord and organ.
This program is co-presented with Bach Society of Houston.
