Intimate concerts to feature instrumentals of the Baroque this month
Baroque Music Montana will present “Poco Pui Meno: More with Less” at Bozeman’s Tinworks on Sunday, August 9th. The intimate performance will begin at 10am.
A handful of voices can still make a chorus. Musicians have always understood that less can be more – that the smallest idea, the slightest gesture, or the simplest story can delight our senses, fill our imaginations and soothe our soul.
Join Carrie Krause, baroque violin, Annabeth Shirley, baroque cello and viola da gamba, and Nate Helgeson, baroque bassoon, for a program of intricate and intimate works of the 17th and 18th centuries. Repertoire to include Becker, Biber, Monteclair, and CPE Bach.
Tinworks, located at 719 N Ida, is a giant warehouse art space and the performance will be staged progressively throughout, with garage doors open. Treeline Coffee and cinnamon rolls available. Help celebrate this historic art-filled space before it is torn down! Admission limited to first 50, masks required inside.
Following Thursday, August 13th, join this trio of musicians for some “Backyard Baroque” featuring the program in an outdoor residential setting. Music begins at 7pm.
Bring seating for lawn or rock benches, sun protection, and masks. Picnics encouraged before or during concert. In event of rain, contact will be made by email by 5:30. Concert will be moved to 7:30pm at Resurrection University Catholic Parish.
Admission for either performance is $25 general or $5 for students. Ticketing information for the local concerts, as well as other regional performances, is available at www.baroquemusicmontana.com.
Baroque Music Montana specializes in chamber music inspired by history. The musician roster rotates based on desired instrumentation for repertoire. Concerts are held in intimate spaces, for which the music was originally intended, and often on period instruments. Using historical instruments and referencing original manuscripts, iconography, and historical writing fuels Baroque Music Montana’s commitment to the music and inspires fresh interpretation. Rather than recreating something old, the aim is to make each performance of this day, of this space, existing because of these musicians and this audience. •
