Baroque and be­fore: mu­sic at San Miguel Chapel

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

This past Novem­ber, na­tion­ally ad­mired Baroque vi­o­lin­ist El­iz­a­beth Blu­men­stock and vi­ola da gam­bist Mary Springfels col­lab­o­rated with col­leagues in a recital at the in­ti­mate San Miguel Chapel (401 Old Santa Fe Trail) ti­tled Mu­sic for Sev­er­all Friends . Now they’re back with Mu­sic for Sev­er­all Friends II , and one hopes more ro­man nu­mer­als may pile up in the fu­ture. In this in­stall­ment, the two string-play­ers are joined by harp­si­chordist-mu­si­col­o­gist Matthew Dirst, who has pub­lished in­sight­ful ar­ti­cles and books on how Bach’s mu­sic was re­ceived by later gen­er­a­tions. Some Bach ap­pears on this pro­gram — his C-mi­nor Sonata for Vi­o­lin and Ob­bli­gato Harp­si­chord, plus his G-ma­jor Trio Sonata — as well as works by such ear­lier com­posers as Locke, Lawes, Byrd, Froberger, and Biber. The con­cert takes place at 8 p.m. on Satur­day, March 7. Tick­ets ($20, with dis­counts for se­niors and stu­dents) are avail­able at the door. No ex­tra charge for ye olde spell­ing of “sev­er­all.” — J.M.K.
