The flourishing of instrumental music in 17th century northern Italy gave composers free reign to explore a conversational (‘concertate’) style of composition, exploring the varied colours and interplay between string and wind instruments. The sackbut (early trombone) came into its own at this time, most notably in the works of composers associated with St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice such as Gabrieli and Castello, who exploited its mellow timbre. At the same time the harp gained popularity as an accompanying bass instrument. We are thrilled to include two sackbuts and harp in the festival ensemble for this program.

Pacific Baroque Festival 2024 celebrates its 20th year from 27 February to 3 March 2024. ‘In Modern Style – Music from 17th Century Italy’, will include 6 events whose programs are intended to provide some context to the origins of baroque music through historically informed performances. These programs include works by the great Claudio Monteverdi as well as music by other composers that deserves to be heard.
