    Denver Eclectic Concerts
    The Music of Guillaume Machaut

    The music of Guillaume de Machaut presented by Marjorie Bunday, Chloe Predergast, Carla Sciaky – Denver Eclectic Concerts at the Mortgage West Gallery in the Plum Bldg, 1705 S. Pearl Street, Denver, on Thursday 9 October 7 pm. Ticket info at www.eclecticconcerts.com.

    The program will be divided into two parts – one will be music of Machaut and the other will be contemporary music sung and played by Carla Sciaky.

Thursday, Friday & Saturday, 16 - 18 October

    Aeris
    "Capriccio"
    Zachary Carrettin, violin; William Skeen, 'cello; Avi Stein, harpsichord

    Aeris is a radically dynamic and expressive trio devoted to the riveting virtuoso violin sonata of the Italian baroque. Comprised of three soloists, violinist Zachary Carrettin, 'cellist William Skeen and harpsichordist Avi Stein, the band is known to improvise freely, exploring the transcendental and impetuous nature of this wild music. Sonatas by Locatelli, Veracini, Matteis, Valentini, Stradella, Vivaldi, and Bach, perhaps the greatest composer in the Italian style!

    Nicolò Spera, Ten-String Guitar
    German Poetry: Bach's Cello Suites n. 5 and 6 performed on the 10-string guitar
    Dreams forever gone or never fulfilled: this is the ethereal substance of poetry in music. Already in Bach’s days, the lute was a nostalgic emblem, a gentle memory of olden times. Inspired, perhaps, by a sound almost forsaken, nearly extinguished, Bach wrote the lute’s swan song: pure poetry. In his first composition for this noble instrument, Bach transformed his Fifth Cello Suite into the First Lute Suite. Since then, others have followed Bach’s practice, producing renditions of the cello suites for the Baroque lute, as well as the six-string guitar. But no one has yet adapted and performed these suites for a guitar with ten strings!

    Elements
    Cynthia Miller Freivogel, violinist-leader with Robin Walsh and Company

    From its opening chord depicting chaos before the creation of the world, Les Elemens by Jean-Fery Rebel sounds astonishingly new even today. BCOC’s interpretation features original large-scale puppet creations by Robin Walsh, fluidly evoking through color and shape the basic elements of our world . . . and our humanity. An encore performance of Jean-Marie Leclair’s Violin Concerto in A minor completes our French-flavored program.
