Music of 17th-century Italy and Germany with Quicksilver

“The Early Moderns: 17th-century Italy and Germany.” Featured will be the virtuosic, experimental, unexpected, and deeply moving “new” music of Castello, Fontana, Merula, Weckmann, et al, the closest Western music has come to a pure, wordless rhetoric.  Robert Mealy & Julie Andrijeski, violins; Greg Ingles, trombone; David Morris, viola da gamba & cello; Dominic Teresi, dulcian; and Avi Stein, harpsichord & organ, explore the beginnings of the sonata, a revolutionary, purely instrumental musical form, with no agenda but the imagination of the composer and the passionate interplay of conversation.

I make sure to hear this group whenever I go to the Boston Early Music Festival.  They are spectacular.  It is also fun to watch Robert and Julie wordlessly communicate while they are playing.



When: Sunday March 2, 2014, 3:45pm (concert starts at 4:00)

Where: St. Marks Lutheran Church 1111 O'Farrell Street, San Francisco CA

Cost: $35 general /$30 seniors /$28 SFEMS members

To order tickets: tickets available at the door.  My favorite seats are in the balcony.  The large organ will be played in this concert.

I am an usher, either taking tickets on the main level or working the balcony.


**NOTE: Google/Yahoo directions are sometimes wrong.**

The entrance to the parking lot is on Gough, not Franklin or O'Farrell.  For good directions, follow this link:

Here is the entrance to their parking lot.


We will meet on the main level by the baptismal for intermission so we can say hi and chat no matter where we are sitting.

    Any of the reserved "meetup" seats not yet purchased had to be released for the general public. If you would like to sit together, request balcony left when you buy your tickets at the door. Otherwise I'll see you at the baptismal for intermission.

    I will have to miss this one, too. I have an ongoing conflict on Sundays at 4 pm but in future can alternate between this, which is only once a month; and the other Meetup which is a commitment on my part. This sounds wonderful and I am really sorry to miss it.
