For our March 17 meeting, Andrew Schultze leads us for “Felix Austria!” Inspired by his four-concert fall tour of Austria with the ensemble Affetti Musicali, the session will present a survey of Hapsburg Empire music for recorders from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, including works from the Austrian National Library, which celebrates its 651st anniversary in 2019. We will play through music from its archives written by Emperor Leopold I himself, as well as pieces by Antonio Draghi, Heinrich Isaac, Heinrich Finck, adding some well-known popular songs of Emperor Leopold’s time. Of special interest will be anonymous arrangements for recorders of music from the recently published Marianne Ronez/Ernst Kubitschek edition of the Gottweig Manuscript of music for the viola d’amore.

Join us as we learn to put more life in our music, using gesture, articulation and phrasing to interpret Spanish rhythms and playful Irish dances. We will also learn to apply robust Italian “affetti” or “musical passions and feelings,” to a wide-ranging repertory, from the European Renaissance and Baroque to contemporary Brazil. In our “Musical Mosaic Through Time”, selections will encompass works of Tomas Luis de Victoria, John Wilbye, G.F. Handel, traditional Celtic, and Brazil’s Ari Barroso.
