Under the Arches: Chamber Music Series at The Pequot Library: New York Waytes

June 28 @ 6:00 pm

Friday, June 28 at 6:00pm | New York Waytes 

Experience an Italian 17th-century sonata, l’Arte di Suonare, emblematic of the early baroque aesthetic. The first instrumental style to emerge in this new ground was the Stylus Fantasticus. It features spirited rhetorical dialogues of tempos, affects, timbres, and textures– stark contracts of audio juxtaposed. This program invites you into a verdant, dreamlike garden of sounds.

Featuring music by: Fontana, Castello, Bertoli, and other sculptors of sound

This summer’s free, outdoor chamber music series will focus on Early Music, a term encompassing all choral and instrumental music stretching from the early Middle Ages through the Renaissance to the middle of the 17th century. This music is marked by beautiful, textured vocals and melodic harpsichords and lutes, and there is no better place to enjoy this beauty of sound than Pequot Library’s Great Lawn. In the case of inclement weather, concerts will take place in Pequot Library’s auditorium.
