For further information and reservations, call (617) 666-9810 or go to www.somervillemuseum.org.

During the early baroque period, German lutenists embraced the new French baroque lute and its lyrical, expressive (yet intimate) musical style, but by the 18th century they had developed their own tradition – a much more outgoing kind of music. Burris and Henriksen will begin their concert with Johann Gumprecht’s French suite, then continue with Radolt’s musical experiments for two lutes, followed by a partita by Telemann. The concert will conclude with music in galant/early classical style, exemplified in sonatas by Corignani and Hagen. Of special interest is a recently-rediscovered concerto for two lutes by the great Silvius Leopold Weiss. Come hear the beautiful and seldom-heard sound of two baroque lutes together!

TIMOTHY BURRIS has performed throughout Europe and the US, both as a soloist and an accompanist. He has appeared in concert with such esteemed artists as the mezzo Jennifer Lane and the keyboardist Robert Hill, as well as under the baton of Peter Schreier and René Clemencic, among others. He teaches at the Portland Conservatory of Music and Colby College, and he is the founder and director of Portland, Maine’s Early Music Festival. OLAV CHRIS HENRIKSEN, acclaimed throughout Europe and North America as a soloist on lutes, theorbo and early guitars, has performed and recorded with the Boston Camerata, Handel & Haydn Society, Waverly Consort, Boston Baroque, Emmanuel Music, Ensemble Chaconne, and Musicians of the Old Post Road, among others. He performs and lectures frequently at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, playing musical instruments from the Museum’s collection.
