Misshapen Pearl the Music of the Baroque Era

Sandy Burnett
May 11th at 7 pm At the Penang Club

Starting in 1607 with Monteverdi’s astonishing opera Orfeo, and ending in 1759 with the death of that great “English” composer George Frederic Handel, the Baroque era produced music of great brilliance and emotional depth. In helping to navigate us through its choppy waters, Sandy draws on his experience as broadcaster, conductor and hands-on practical musician. His in-depth exploration of this fascinating period of Classical music draws on hand picked images, autograph scores, and recorded musical illustrations, with a special focus on the work of Johann Sebastian Bach.
