Quicksilver – Wunderkammer: A Cabinet of Wonder from the 17th Century
July 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10 - $20
Wunderkammer, or “wonder rooms,” were cabinets containing wide-ranging collections of objects whose categorical boundaries were not defined. With new found compositional freedom, 17th century composers similarly created many musical wonders, stretching the boundaries of musical conversation, welcoming the influences of migrants, and exploring new means to communicate the depths of their experiences. The result of their efforts was a wealth of musical treasures, many of which are only recently coming to light.
Performers include Robert Mealy and Julie Andrijeski, violins; Greg Ingles, sackbut; Charles Weaver, lute and theorbo; and Avi Stein, harpsichord and organ.
