Music in the Museum: The Presence of the Past. Music for Cello and Theorbo or Guitar

Tuesday, February 12, 2019,

Paul J. Schupf Wing

The ensemble ScheckMate starts with historic instruments (baroque cello and theorbo) to recreate the spirit of invention in Italy around 1700, making the music of the past a present and living tradition. In the second part of the program, Scheckmate will perform music written in the spirit of nostalgia, a return to the past, including works for cello and guitar by Burgmüller and Villa-Lobos (Bachianas brasileiras #5) and a guitar piece by John McGuire.
