NewsAn Evening of Baroque Music Presented at Marlboro College
Marlboro, Vt.—Marlboro College Senior Esther Hall-Reinhard, Baroque violin, presents an evening concert of Baroque music, including works by Corelli, Biber, Purcell and Bach, on Friday, November 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Ragle Hall in the Serkin Center for the Performing Arts.
Maintaining a dissimilar physical construction from modern violin, Baroque violin also embodies a different aesthetic and conceptual approach to music. Studying historical performance enables Hall-Reinhard to perform Baroque violin as Baroque violin may have been played during the Baroque period from 1600 to 1750.
“I have played the violin since I was 3, and I never knew there was this whole field of historical performance until I came to Marlboro,” says Hall-Reinhard, “It’s a completely new and exciting way to approach these works, which are really pillars of every violinists’ repertoire.”
Hall-Reinhard will be joined by Marlboro Professor of Music Stan Charkey, lute; Alice Robbins, viola de gamba; and Michelle Lietchti, Baroque violin. Hall-Reinhard is studying Baroque violin performance practice and the evolution of violin repertoire, technique, construction, social status and performance through the Baroque period.
Hall-Reinhard’s Plan of Concentration emphasizes performance and includes an examination of the evolution of violin repertoire, technique and construction through the Baroque period.
This concert is free and open to the public.
