SalonEra: Performer-Composers

  • September 27, 2021, 7:30 pm EST

Meet string-player Doug Balliett, harpsichordist Nicola Canzano, and baritone Jonathan Woody: three acclaimed performers whose multi-faceted careers include composing new music for early instruments. They’ll share recent work as we explore their unique compositional viewpoints and creative processes. Nicola introduces the 18th-century compositional practice of Partimento, Doug follows Bach’s legacy in composing a full year’s worth of cantatas, and Jonathan previews his new work By much love betray’d, commissioned for Les Délices’ Concert Series opener, Song of Orpheus.
