Lecture: What’s BAROQUE About Baroque Music?

May 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

In broad terms, the Baroque period is when the solo and trio sonata became a fixed form, the orchestra was born, opera kicked off in a big way, and the concerto gave soloists the chance to properly show off. From the period’s beginnings in the early 1600s to when the Classical period style began to take over in the mid-1700s, the sound of the Baroque period remained distinct – ordered, ornate and increasingly emotive as the period went on. Learn more about music and instruments from the “Age of the Baroque” in this lecture presented by John Burkhalter, the artistic director of The Practitioners of Musick, specializing in the musical world of Eighteenth Century Great Britain and Ireland and the Colonial and early Federal periods in America.  This free program is presented in advance of three June performances by The Princeton Festival Baroque Orchestra.  Tickets and information can be found at princetonfestival.org.
