Early Music Seattle

Town Hall Seattle, Seattle, WA

Bruce Dickey, guest music director / cornetto

Giovanni Gabrieli, who died in 1612, is considered one of the greatest composers of the Italian High Renaissance. Early Music Seattle celebrates the holidays this year with music by this Venetian master, his uncle Andrea Gabrieli, and their contemporaries. This is music that would have echoed from the mosaic-covered vaults of Saint Mark’s Basilica and other Venetian churches. The program consists of motets for two to 15 voices, as well as dazzling sonatas and canzonas for cornetti, trombones, and strings – festive music worthy of the season but also of the pomp and brilliance of the Venetian State.

Vocal Soloists: Danielle Sampson, Arwen Myers, Vicki St. Pierre, Nicholas Burns, Colin Balzer, Ross Hauck, Martin Auclair, Sumner Thompson
