Sonata à Quattro: A Dark & Stormy Night
Join us for a program of dark and stormy pieces! Sonata à Quattro's 3rd Season opens with a program exploring the darker side of human experience, from Vivaldi's motet, burning with godly rage, to Bach's secular Cantata, deploring the departure of a beloved friend. Quantz' bubbly Flute Quartet in D Major provides some needed moments of optimism, before we turn to the poignant, brooding Barrière Cello Sonata. Even the viola gets a turn, in the Telemann, to unfold a haunting saga of tragic beauty.
But the composers do not leave us in despair; each one leads the listener through the dark night of the soul, to the morning after.
Bonus: the Bach Cantata opens with an awesome instrumental Sinfonia that is not to be missed! SAQ is so pleased to welcome flutist Linda Pereksta, a consummate artist who shines in the Quantz, Telemann, and Bach.
