Not all composers are nice guys. Although some, like Henry Purcell, were sociable optimists, others, like Matthew Locke, acquired a menagerie of unflattering adjectives. Disagreeable. Vitriolic. Ill-tempered. Spiteful. Atrabilious. Locke was called all of these things. And Locke was not alone.
On March 2 at 7:30 pm, Central United Methodist Church will host Wayward Sisters, an award-winning early music ensemble, for a program of music music penned by difficult men. Matthew Locke, Tarquinio Merula, William Brade, Nicola Matteis, and even Dario Castello left evidence of both their challenging temperaments and their prodigious musicianship - come and hear for yourself!
Wayward Sisters is Beth Wenstrom (baroque violin), Anne Timberlake (recorders), Anna Steinhoff (baroque cello), and John Lenti (theorbo and guitar). In 2011, Wayward Sisters won the Early Music America/Naxos recording competition, and recorded their debut CD with Naxos during the 2011-2012 season.
Suggested donation $20, $15 seniors and students.
