Santa Cruz Baroque Festival
Claudia Gantívar crop
“Wind Power: Virtuoso Music for Baroque Flutes” Claudia Liliana Gantívar (recorders) with Lars Johannesson and Alissa Roedig (early flutes) perform a program tracing the powerful winds of change sweeping across Europe, which transformed musical style several times during the 17th and 18th centuries. In the 1600s, the early Italian style blew north to France and Germany, influencing the later writing of J.S. Bach and Handel. Tastes changed again in the late 1700s, as the ornamental baroque style yielded to breezy rococo and pre-Classical writing, as heard in the works of C.P.E. Bach. Traveling with the times, the flauto and the traverso have left behind a trail of brilliant wind sonatas for us to enjoy centuries later. A meet-the-artist-reception for donors and subscribers follows the event.
