Austin Baroque Orchestra

September 19th, 2020, 7:30PM

Austin Baroque Orchestra

Since ancient times, musicians have used repeating patterns as a foundation for compositions and improvisations. One of the most common, the ground bass, involves a bass line that repeats itself while the voices above engage in melodic variation of increasing complexity. Later, dances based on repeating chord progressions, like the chaconne and passacaille, became popular, turning up in popular French operas and Italian concertos. Recorded at St. Theresa Catholic Church in Austin and live premiered in high-definition video and audio on YouTube, this program will include music by Handel, Vivaldi, Lully, Purcell, Marini, & Telemann. After ticket purchase and before the premiere, patrons will be emailed with the YouTube address for the concert, which will premiere on Sept. 19 at 7:30pm. They will have access to the video for two weeks to watch at their leisure as many times as they like, after which the video will be removed.
