Portland Baroque Orchestra: Italy c. 1600-1760
Carla Moore (violin), Tanya Tomkins (violoncello), and Nate Helgeson (bassoon) revisit a fraught era in Italian history. As the Protestant movement sought to reform and demystify Catholicism, the latter doubled down with ever more elaborate visual and aural compositions. Vivaldi, Castello, and de Selma y Salaverde each played their part. The Sunday performance will take place at Kaul Auditorium at Reed College.
