Capitol Hill Chamber Music Festival: Winds of the Renaissance

The elusive dulcian and the rarely heard renaissance transverse flute offer many qualities that were sacrificed as the bassoon and flute evolved to suit later 17th-century expectations and are scarcely to be experienced today. Their sweetness, warmth, and pinpoint flexibility enable these renaissance wind instruments to convey a powerful emotional impact. These works for soprano and bass instruments together with an accompanying theorbo (a long-necked lute) by Frescobaldi, Legrenzi, Picchi, Bassano, Cima and Selma y Salaverde are not otherwise to be heard on these instruments today and we hope you'll join us.
