Barokksolistene
Friday, October 6, 7:30 pm
International House Assembly Room

In the late 17th century, when theaters were shuttered due to religious reasons, many English alehouses were turned into so-called
Musick-Houses. There, musicians gathered to play for enthusiastic (and tipsy) audiences; even Henry Purcell was known to premiere some of his music in this informal, intimate setting. The Norwegian ensemble Barokksolistene pays homage to the tavern tradition with this lively program.
