"Musica da Camera": Italian Music Performance Oct. 17 at S.F. State

Judith Nelson and the Streicher Trio to perform

WHAT: "Musica da Camera: a concert of 17th and 18th century Italian music" will include several selections of baroque chamber music: trios by Luigi Boccherini and Muzio Clementi, sonatas by Dario Castello, solo cantatas by Mario Savioni, Luigi Rossi, and cantatas and gondola songs by anonymous composers. The pieces to be performed will span from the lyrical to the vigorous; the texts of the solo cantatas all focus on love with its attendant pleasures and torments.

WHEN AND WHERE: 3 p.m., Sunday, October 17, 1999 at Knuth Hall in the Creative Arts Building at San Francisco State University. Admission is $2 students/$5 others.

DETAILS:. Judith Nelson is one of the world’s leading baroque repertoire singers. She has performed with many of the major baroque orchestras in Europe and the United States and in operas in many of the major cities on both continents. The Streicher Trio is comprised of founder and fortepianist Charlene Brendler, violinist Carla Moore and cellist Sarah Freiberg. The Trio takes its name from Nannette Streicher, a friend of Beethoven and the first women piano builder in Vienna. The concert, both the music selected and its interpretation in performance, stems from research conducted by Charlene Brendler in the Frank V. de Bellis Collection at SFSU, which has extensive holding of Italian music scores and archival sound recordings.

NOTE: Rossi’s "Chi Consiglia un Dubbio Core," found in the de Bellis Collection by Ms. Brendler and sung by Judith Nelson, may be the only surviving copy of this cantata.

FOR MORE INFORMATION: Call Sally Berlowitz of the Frank V. de Bellis Collection at (415) 338-1649.
