Jewish Music From the Italian Ghetto

Friday, October 18, 2018
1:00 to 1:45 coffee, 1:45 to 3:00 program 
Marin Osher JCC
200 N San Pedro Rd, San Rafael, CA 94903

Guest Lecturer: Francesco Spagnolo, PhD

PBO Musicians: violinists Kati Kyme and Noah Strick, Harpsichordist Katherine Heater, and Cellist Paul Hale.

Fluent in the musical language of early seventeenth century Italy and performing on instruments just like those from that era, a small ensemble from Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra (PBO) and Chorale will present the rich music of the Jewish violinist and court composer Salmone Rossi and his contemporaries.

Be dazzled by the glorious sounds of baroque violins, cello, harpsichord and theorbo. Under the guidance of Guest Lecturer Professor Francesco Spagnolo, UC Berkeley’s Department of Music and Curator of The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, experience the fascinating history behind music that emerged from the ghetto to dazzle the Mantuan court. Tailored specially for the wonderful audience at OFJCC, this program features material that PBO musicians have shared with students and audiences at Harvard University, Yale University, and University of Chicago.
