S. TESSERAE Period Instrument Ensemble

  Sunday, January 20, 2019 - 5:00PM
  All Saints Episcopal Church
  504 N. Camden Dr., Beverly Hills CA
  [WestSide]
  For Google map, click:
  http://goo.gl/maps/xBWke

Program - Concerti Ecclesiastici
Selections by Lodovico Viadana (1560-1627),
 Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672), Alessandro Grandi (1586-1630),
 and Matthias Weckmann (ca.1616~24-1674)

Tesserae presents a snapshot of the expressive small-scale sacred music of the early Baroque. The program features works by Lodovico Viadana - from whose famous collection of sacred music the program's title is taken - as well as music by Heinrich Schütz, who composed small-scale church music by necessity, many of his resources being subsumed by the Thirty Years' War.

TESSERAE is a Los Angeles-based period-instrument ensemble specializing in music from the early 17th century. Formed in 2010, Tesserae combines instruments from various Renaissance consort families (violin, viol, violone, and brass) and explores some of the most beautiful repertoire of the time, from the intimate chamber music of the early 17th century to the splendor of large-scale Venetian polychoral music. Read about Tesserae and its artists by clicking:

Tickets: $30 / $25 seniors and SCEMS* / $10 students.
