Santa Cecilia Orchestra Presents
“Chamber Music Up Close”
Saturday, March 6, 2010, 8:00pm
Center For The Arts, 2225 Colorado Blvd., Eagle Rock
Program: Music of Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli, Gesualdo, and a selection of early 17th century Venetian composers.
James Newton's Prayers and Tears for the Broken for brass ensemble
Description: A program from the birth of the baroque: music of unparalleled fantasy and imagination, emotion and expressive complexity.
Featuring both vocal and instrumental music, this program is performed by a mixed ensemble of vocalists and brass, wind and string players with music by Giovanni Gabrieli, Gesualdo, a selection of early 17th century Venetian composers, and is put into perspective with two recent compositions related to this older style: James Newton's Prayers and Tears for the Broken for brass ensemble and Mark Menzies' arrangement of the passion chorale.
Mark Menzies conducts and leads from the violin and viola a large ensemble of soloists both instrumental and vocal; Maurita (Bunny) Phillips-Thornburgh is a featured soprano soloist.
