The Capitol Chamber Players will open their season with a baroque concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, at Congregation B’nai Israel, 3600 Riverside Blvd. in Sacramento.

The concert, titled “Happy Birthday Zipoli,” will feature rarely heard music of Domenico Zipoli, an Italian baroque composer whose birthday falls on Oct. 17. Susan Erickson, a Davis harpsichordist and performer in this concert, is a baroque expert on this composer.

Born in 1688, Zipoli was a well-regarded musician who was appointed to the prestigious position of organist to the Church of Gésu in Rome in 1715. For unknown reasons, Zipoli traveled to Seville, Spain, in 1716 where he joined the Jesuits. From there, he was sent to Paraguay, where he wrote music for the local Indians, the Guaranis.

He is remembered as the most accomplished musician among the Jesuit missionaries and his unpublished music continues to be discovered today. The cantata “Mia Bella Irene” is one of those recently discovered works, which was edited by Erickson while she was a professor of music in Sydney. Australia.

Erickson’s “The Keyboard Music of Domenico Zipoli” (Cornell University 1975) is considered the most comprehensive work in the English language on this composer. It also contains the first modern edition of Zipoli’s violin sonata, which also will be performed on the concert.

Other performers in the concert are Rona Commins, soprano; Robert Samson Bloch and Julian Woodruff, violin; and Rejean Anderson, cello. In addition to Zipoli, works of Corelli, Torelli, LeClair and Pepusch will be performed.

Tickets at the door are $18 general, $12 for seniors and $7 for students. For more information, call (916) 428-7379.
