Baroque concert features Capitol Chamber Players

By From page A9 | November 13, 2012

The Capitol Chamber Players will open the 2012-13 season at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, at the Congregation B’nai Israel, 3600 Riverside Blvd., in Sacramento.

The concert, “Baroque & Haydn with a Fugue,” will feature works of baroque composers J.S. Bach, Handel and Zipoli, and a classical work of Haydn. Performers are Rona Commins, soprano; Rhennie Boyle, viola; Rejean Anderson, cello; and Davis residents Maquette Kuper, flute; Robert Samson Bloch, violin; and Susan Erickson, harpsichord.

Erickson will perform Partite in A Minor by Domenico Zipoli. Kuper will perform the J.S. Bach Suite in B Minor for flute and strings. Commins represents Bach’s German contemporary, Handel, with a “Nightengale Aria,” Il Pensiero.

The strings will perform Haydn’s Quartet in A Major Op. 20, No 6. The opus 20 quartets forever changed the way composers would write string quartets. Three of the six quartets have fugues as finales where Haydn reverted to this Baroque counterpoint technique, further illustrating his rejection of rococo lightness.

Tickets are $18 general, $12 for seniors and $7 for students. For more information, call 916-428-7389.
