STILE MODERNO: THE NEW SCIENCE OF MUSIC IN ITALY
In their BEMF début, Quicksilver offers a thrilling glimpse at the imagination and invention of “new music” from 17th-century Italy, a transformative moment in Western cultural history. From technologies to the economy to science, a modern world was emerging, and people were becoming aware of larger perspectives and new ways of regarding that world. Quicksilver’s concert will feature vivid and unexpected music—written in this climate of incredible social and scientific transformation—by Dario Castello, G. B. Fontana, Marco Uccellini, and others.
