Happy Hour Chamber Concerts
Welcome to Happy Hour Chamber Concerts. We present short programs of really good chamber music in an informal setting. All programs (60-75 minutes with no intermission) are in the very pleasant sanctuary of Epiphany Lutheran Church at 6 pm on Fridays. Light refreshments are included in your ticket price.
Friday, April 26, 6:00 pm
Matthew Dane, viola, and Frank Nowell, harpsichord
St. Epiphany Lutheran Church,
790 South Corona Street, Denver.
This program will feature music of the Baroque for viola and viola d’amore plus harpsichord. We are excited to present pieces by the master J. S. Bach alongside fascinating ones by lesser-known composers Attilio Ariosti and William Flackton. While Ariosti was Italian by birth, both he and Flackton composed the pieces we will perform in Flackton’s native England. Ariosti was an early player and advocate for the viola d’amore, an exotic instrument of at least twelve strings whose intimate, resonant voice attracted many composers of the time- including Bach. The sonata for viola and harpsichord by Flackton is one of a set of four he wrote for the express purpose of “establishing a higher Veneration and Taste for this excellent, tho’ too much neglected Instrument.”
