Barefoot Chamber Concerts presents Linsenberg, Kammen, Heater, and Maund
“A La Mode, Au Monde 2 @ El Cerrito, CA” or “Beyond The Fipple–Music for Shifted Paradigms from Still-Undiscovered Worlds” Oops, they’re doing it again!  The very last concert of Barefoot’s glorious 18–19 season is, fittingly, these four East Bay legends playing whatever they can come up with that you won’t expect. Prepare to be surprised by elegant, eldritch and explosive music from unexpected continents and unheard-of time periods, on instruments seldom played together on the same stage. If you’re not confused and delighted, you won’t have been paying attention. A copy of the actual program has been sealed in a capsule under a rock in the Bay in a secret location, to be printed out 1/2 hour before the concert. We can tell you nothing, or we’d have to kill you. Last time these worthies did this, it was sold out. Just saying. This is not your Aunt’s Early Music; although, your Aunt would probably love it. Contains nuts. There may be traces of balalaika.

Sunday, June 9

San Francisco Choral Artists, Magen Solomon, Director
“Castle, Court and Chamber: Harpsichords at Home” What do nightingales, wretched lovers, and spinach in one’s teeth have in common?  All will be part of SFCA’s season finale: sacred and profane, old and new, music for the spiritual enhancement and entertainment of both royalty and regular folk. The program features baroque and 20th/21st century composers famous and anonymous, including Bach, Handel, Kogler, Hensel, Mendelssohn, Clara & Robert Schumann, Daniel Afonso, Alice Parker, Schütz, and world premieres by Composer-in-Residence Jean Ahn and Composer-Not-in-Residence Robinson McClellan. As part of the SF Choral Artists’ annually recurring SFCA+1 program, the choir will be joined by internationally-known harpsichordist Jillon Stoppels Dupree and cellist Paul Hale. Together and separately they offer baroque and contemporary pieces that are rarely heard, juxtaposed to highlight both their similarities and differences.
