CMC At Piccolo Spoleto

May 31, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The world has celebrated the music of composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach and Antonio Vivaldi for centuries, but what about the female composers who were writing equally glorious music during the Baroque and early Classical era?  In 1756 Anna Bon, “virtuosa di musica di camera,” penned extraordinary flute sonatas for her employer, the illustrious Margrave of Brandenburg and his music-loving wife.  And then there is Anna Amalia, Duchess of Saxe-Weimar and composer who played harpsichord, flute, and violin.  Chamber Music Charleston curates a special program of music that explores the compositions of these lesser-known composers, performed alongside their male contemporaries.
Regina Helcher Yost, flute; Kelly Mozeik, oboe; Sandra Nikolajevs, bassoon; Julia Harlow, harpsichord
Anna Amalia Divertimento for Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, and Harpsichord
Anna Bon Sonata No. 4 in D Major for Flute, Bassoon, and Harpsichord
Vivaldi Bassoon Concerto in a minor, RV 398
JS Bach Concerto Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Harpsichord
