LAMF Storms, Shipwrecks & Sorcery

July 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Storms, Shipwrecks, and Sorcery is a fantastical journey through some of the most dramatic music of the 17th and 18th centuries. This program evokes both literal storms and clouds of rage. Guest soprano Nola Richardson stunningly portrays two sorceresses scorned, both the anguished Armida from Handel’s Armida Abbandonata and the vengeful Médée, namesake of Clérambault’s masterpiece. Artistic advisor and curator Chloe Fedor performs the dizzying La Tempesta di Mare, Vivaldi’s violin concerto depicting a storm at sea.

-This concert features music from the Baroque period of music history, generally from 1600-1750. Familiar composers from this period include Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi (who wrote The Four Season), George Frideric Handel (who wrote The Messiah), and Johann Pachelbel (whose famous Canon in D is played at many weddings!)
-This concert features a small baroque band including 3 violinists, viola, cello, string bass, harpsichord (a predecessor of the piano), and theorbo, which is a large plucked instrument like a lute or guitar.
-Soprano Nola Richardson is a sought after baroque singer. She will join the instrumentalists on several works called “Cantatas”. These can be compared to a one-woman mini-opera.
