Event Description:

SONNAMBULA
Renaissance Ghosts: A Hallowe’en Masquerade

featuring Elizabeth Weinfield, Amy Domingues, Shirley Hunt, James Kennerley, and Jude Ziliak

“A fine, young viol group”
  - The New Yorker

Ring in Halloween with spritely songs and scary dances originally composed for the courts of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I!  Heard at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Boston Early Music Festival, and The Frick Collection, the lauded Sonnambula ensemble brings their lush sound and knack for original programs of rarely heard Renaissance music.

Come early for a free Renaissance dance class with historic dance specialist Tom Baird and learn how renaissance music originated from the dances of the period.


ABOUT SONNAMBULA:

Praised as “superb” by Alex Ross in The Rest is Noise, and hailed as a “fine home-town group,” by The New Yorker, Sonnambula is a Renaissance ensemble that brings to light unknown music for various combinations of early instruments with the lush sound of the viol at the core. The group has performed on historic instruments at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, has been a featured ensemble at the Amherst and Boston Early Music Festivals, and has presented concerts at The Frick Collection, Alice Tully Hall, Columbia University, Spectrum, and The Museum of Biblical Art in New York, as well as in numerous other venues throughout the Northeast. Sonnambula continued its residency this season at The Hispanic Society of America with a concert of premieres of 18th-century Cuban music in conjunction with the Cuban Cultural Center of New York. The ensemble is currently working with Princeton University composers to commission new work for viol consort, and will have its début concert on MetLiveArts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in December 2016. The name Sonnambula is a reference to the Fantasia, a contrapuntal free-composed form favored by Renaissance composers, and a pun on the Humanist notion that art gives life to metaphor.
