Baroque Competition Winners Perform in Milwaukee

Pallade Musica brings together four of Montreal’s most promising Early Music performers. Grand Prize winners at the Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition in New York, October 2012, the quartet consists of Tanya LaPerrière, Baroque violon, Elinor Frey, Baroque cello, Esteban La Rotta, theorbo, and Mylène Bélanger, harpsichord. They played together in past seasons in groups such as Ensemble Caprice, Arion, Proemio, and the Montreal Baroque Festival before launching their own Montreal series at the Chapelle Notre-Dame-de- Bon-Secours.

They seek to explore the repertoire for violin, cello and continuo using the cello, theorbo, and harpsichord as instruments in a contrapuntal role, allowing for a diverse sound palette of various textures and colors. The members of Pallade Musica come from from Quebec, the USA, and Colombia, and have studied at McGill, ESMuC Barcelona, Civica Scuola di Milano, Scuola Cantorum Basiliensis, Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, and the Juilliard School.

We're pleased to bring them to Milwaukee on Saturday, November 16 at 5:00 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 914 E Knapp Street, for a program inspired by two Italian words that can be used to characterize emotional effects found in Italian Baroque music: terreno and vago. Terreno represents the earth: that which is profane, secular, regular, and defined. The contrasting vago is music of reflection: it is irregular, spiritual, sacred, elusive, and vague. The program explores these binaries through 17-century Italian repertoire for the violin, cello, and basso continuo undefined especially sonatas with three interdependent parts undefined and includes works by Castello, Piccinini, Rognoni, Jarzebski, Haym, Scarlatti, Legrenzi, Cima, Rosenmüller, Fiorè, and Merula.

Pallade Musica will also perform at UW-Parkside's Frances Bedford Concert Hall at 7:00 Friday evening, November 15, as the conclusion of a collaborative residency with the Music Department, which also includes an afternoon lecture demonstration. Contact the UW-Parkside Box Office at 262-595-2564 for more information.
