Sacramento Baroque Soloists open season with ‘Songs and Sonatas’

The Sacramento Baroque Soloists open their 10th season on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 8-9, with a festive selection of songs and sonatas from Vivaldi, Telemann, Corelli, Purcell, Gabrielli and Sammartini.

The Saturday evening concert at St. Paul’s Church, 1430 J St. in Sacramento, will be followed by a celebratory reception, as will the Sunday afternoon performance at Stegman Hall on the campus of Rudolf Steiner College at 9200 Fair Oaks Blvd., Fair Oaks.

The group is celebrating a decade of strong community support for Baroque music, said Music Director Lisa Marie Lawson.

“We began playing together on 2001 at Pease Conservatory’s Geary Theater and expanded outward, moving to spaces that accommodated our audience as it grew,” Lawson said. “Since 2001 we’ve played over 50 different concerts in downtown Sacramento, performing Baroque-era music from Gabrielli and Marini to Vivaldi and Bach.”

The group’s composition changes with each concert, depending on the demands of the music, from as few as three musicians to as many as 11. All are professional musicians who have performed Baroque music for years.

The Sacramento Baroque Soloists perform early music on Baroque-style instruments, which produce a sound very different from the music made with the instruments’ modern equivalents.

“Period instruments better convey the music’s dynamic energy and expressive qualities,” Lawson explained, noting that digital recordings of period instruments “cannot capture the harmonics that our ears hear in a live performance.”

Musicians playing such instruments choose to perform in spaces with resonant acoustics, she explained, giving the sound a natural reverb that highlights the harmonic colors of the music.

The Sacramento Baroque Soloists’ 2011-12 season opens this weekend with “Songs and Sonatas,” featuring Vivaldi’s Trio Sonata “La Follia,” Telemann’s Trio Sonata for Oboe, Violin, and Continuo, and Corelli’s Trio Sonata in A minor, followed by D. Gabrielli’s Balletto Primo, Sammartini’s Cello Sonata, and selected songs by Purcell.

Continuing its tradition of offering seasonal music in its “Winter’s Eve” concert, the ensemble presents on Dec. 3 and 4 an evening of early Christmas carols and Celtic music performed with voice, violin, flute, cello, lute, harp, harpsichord and drums.

An early March concert brings back the seductive “Voice of the Cello” program on March 3 and 4, performed by cellists Michael Lawson and John Lutterman accompanied by Ellen Deffner, harpsichord. This season’s offering of Baroque and early classical cello sonatas features works from Berteau, Marcello, Geminiani and Vivaldi.

Season subscriptions range from $27 to $67; call (916) 705-3806 or visit www.sacramentobaroque.org.
