17th Century Masterworks from Eastern Europe
La Follia performs religious and secular music from the historic Kroměříž collection, compiled by Karl II von Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn from 1664-1695 in what is now the Czech Republic. Guest violinist and Kroměříž scholar Mimi Mitchell joins an exotic La Follia ensemble of voices, strings, trombones, organ, harpsichord, and theorbo performing works by Vejvanovsky, Kerll, Biber, Bertali, Poglietti, Rittler and others.
Earlier in the week, La Follia will perform this concert for the Annual Meeting of the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music in San Antonio. We are eager to share this wondrous music with Austin audiences.
Performing on this concert are: Meredith Ruduski, soprano; Nick Zammit, countertenor; Mimi Mitchell and Alan Austin, violins; Jane Leggiero, viola da gamba; Erik Schmaltz, alto and tenor sackbut; Nathaniel Brickens, tenor sackbut; Darren Workman, bass sackbut; Scott Horton, theorbo; and Keith Womer, organ, harpsichord, and director of La Follia.
For modern classical audiences, these composers are not well known, but for connoisseurs, these composers are known for the masters that they are. Become a connoisseur yourself, and you will find out what you have been sorely missing.
