Season Chamber Concert III • Available to Stream!

Jacques Ogg from Home: Cellebroederskapel in Maastricht,
The Netherlands

In January our concert comes from Maastricht in The Netherlands, set along the banks of the Meuse river. Lyra’s artistic director, Jacques Ogg brings us a special solo performance from the Cellebroederskapel. This chapel was built in 1512 as an addition to the monastery established in 1360. More recently it’s where a young Jacques used to practice the organ. From this beautiful town of medieval streets and buildings we’ll hear the music of Froberger, Frescobaldi, and other relatively new-fangled composers of the 17th century.

JACQUES OGG, harpsichord

French Dreams & Games

We’re all familiar with music for dancing, and music for singing, but what about music for playtime, or music for sleep? In December we enjoy the music of France during the reigns of Louis XIV and XV; when dance was king, or at least the king was a dancer, and music and dance extended to all the activities of life from epic to mundane.  Featuring music by Marin Marais, Antoine Dornel, and Jean-Marie Leclair.

with MIRIAM SCHOLZ-CARLSON & MARC LEVINE, violin
JULIE ELHARD, viola da gamba
PAUL BOEHNKE, harpsichord

Italian Trios: A Trip from Venice to Amsterdam

Italy holds a pre-eminent role in the story of baroque music as we know it. New techniques and genres, as well as composers themselves spread from Italy across Europe in waves with each successive generation throughout the baroque era. Our first concert this season follows these Iberian trends and trend setters and the interchange between two cultural capitols: Venice and Amsterdam. Including music by Vivaldi, Vitali, and Rossi.

with GINNA WATSON & THERESA ELLIOTT, violin
TULIO RONDÓN & CHARLES ASCH, cello
DONALD LIVINGSTON, harpsichord

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24, 11AM  (Available to watch now until June 2021)
