LAWRENCE-The University of Kansas School of Music Instrumental Collegium Musicum will present its winter concert at Swarthout Recital Hall on Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 7:30 PM.

 

The ensemble includes eleven undergraduate and graduate students who play reproductions of instruments like those used before the eighteenth century, including Baroque members of the violin family, viola da gamba, recorders, sackbut (an early trombone), and harpsichord. Selections for the concert will fall into several groups: the String Consort will perform fantasias by William Byrd (1543-1623) and Henry Purcell (1659-1695) and a sonata by Salamone Rossi (c 1570-1630), while the Wind Consort will play another Byrd fantasia and dances by Anthony Holbourne (c 1545-1602) and other composers. Baroque chamber music will include a trio sonata by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788) and a quartet by Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758). A special treat will be the Six Elizabethan Songs by Dominic Argento (b. 1927) with tenor soloist Michael Davidson, a DMA candidate in voice, accompanied by flute, oboe, violin, cello, and harpsichord.
