Old Music – 7:15 to 7:45 in the Front Room
Paul Falatko (viola/mandola) and Paula Taylor (violin) play old music from Western Europe — really old music — from about 1300 to 1750, an era that includes the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance — a time of both terrible upheaval such as great floods throughout Europe, the Hundred Years War, Joan of Arc, Black Death, the War of the Roses, as well as great artistic works. Chaucer, Shakespeare, Vermeer, da Vinci, and Michelangelo wrote, painted, and sculpted great works, and composers such as Clemens non Papa (1510-1556), Phalese (1510 – 1574), Lully (1632 -1687), Purcell (1659 – 1695), Rameau (1683 – 1764), Bach (1685 – 1750), Handel (1685 – 1759), von Gluck (1714 – 1787), and Leopold Mozart (1719 – 1787) wrote masterworks still performed regularly today. Join “Old Music” for a little trip WAY back in time.
