Baroque to the Future
19/09/2021 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm$32 – $37
Toss out the powdered wigs! Baroque will never be the same for anyone after this concert. Composers of the late 17th and early 18th centuries engaged in more experimentation than they get credit for – and some of their music sounds like it could have been written today. The music of Biber, Telemann and Rameau includes early hints of minimalism, jazz and the modern movie soundtrack — and the bonus of Charles Ives-like polytonality!
This concert is supported by a grant from the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture.
