Tuesday afternoon, August 7, 2018 at 1:30 PM: Winds of the Renaissance
|  Baltimore Basilica
|  409 Cathedral Street in Baltimore
 Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute
 Anna Marsh ~ dulcian (renaissance bassoon)
 Marlisa del Cid Woods ~ violin
 Risa Browder ~ viola
 Billy Simms ~ theorbo

The elusive dulcian and the rarely heard renaissance transverse flute offer many essential qualities, scarcely to be experienced today, that were sacrificed as the bassoon and flute evolved to suit later 17th-century expectations. Their sweetness, warmth, and pinpoint flexibility enable these renaissance wind instruments to convey a powerful emotional impact. Works for soprano and bass instruments together with an accompanying theorbo (a long-necked lute) by Frescobaldi, Legrenzi, Picchi, Bassano, Cima and Selma y Salaverde will be included on the program.

Sunday afternoon, August 12, 2018 at 1:00 PM: Italian 4-Part Canzonas
|  St. Ignatius Church
|  740 N. Calvert Street in Baltimore
 Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute
 Anna Marsh ~ dulcian (renaissance bassoon)
 Marlisa del Cid Woods ~ violin
 Risa Browder ~ viola
 Billy Simms ~ theorbo

    This program offers an in-depth exploration of the rarely-heard Italian four-part canzona, inspired by French and Flemish chansons from several decades earlier, which blossomed in print from 1582 to 1628 concurrently with increasing activity among violin makers and players in Milan, Brescia and Cremona, and representing the transitional mannerist style which bridged the renaissance and baroque styles in music.
     Baroque winds, notably the transverse flute and bassoon, experienced radical modifications and appeared only very late in the 17th century. This program provides an opportunity to experience the convergence of the renaissance and the baroque in the context of an evolving musical landscape, which differed greatly in France and Italy. French songs for three and four parts by Crecquillon, Briault, Busnoys and Boyvin, and Italian four-part canzonas by Cima, Biumi, Canale, Buonamente, Maschera, Ardemanio are to be included in the program.
