You're Invited: Sunday, April 29th to:
 
THE EMERGENCE OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT
With Strings Attached
 
an evening of music by Mozart, Haydn and Boccherini and prints by Goya
 
Two of Chicago's premier early music organizations join forces on Sunday, April 29th, 2007 at 7:30 PM in a rare concert titled "THE EMERGENCE OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT -- With Strings Attached" featuring both rare and popular 18th century string ensemble works of Boccherini, Haydn, Mozart and more. An all-star group of performers with period instruments will perform under the direction of Jerry Fuller in this finale event of Ars Musica Chicago's 2006-07 season.  The setting is the DePaul Art Museum located at 2350 North Kenmore (at Fullerton), Chicago.  Tickets are $20 ($15 seniors, $5 students, DePaul students FREE) and may be obtained by calling 312-409-7874 or logging on to www.ArsMusicaChicago.org
 
A pre-concert lecture will take place at 6:45 PM. Dr. Jacqueline Hara will discuss the Enlightenment and the art works of Goya (Francisco de Goya y Lucientes), whose series of prints entitled Disasters of War (which he made during the conflict between Spain and France) will be hanging in the museum as part of the museum's exhibit titled "BLOOD AND INK - Disasters of War from Goya to the Chapman Brothers."
 
One of the most exciting periods of history was at the end of the 18th century, concurrently a time of revolution and of exploding artistic creativity. It was the era when Johann Stamitz, Karl Stamitz, Franz Joseph Haydn, Luigi Boccherini, and later, Mozart, made their mark.  String ensemble works by these five masters will be performed by some of the country's leading strings players, including Martha Perry and Garry Clarke, violins; William Bauer, viola; Pablo Mahave-Veglia, violoncello; and Jerrry Fuller, double bass.  The pieces include the rarely heard Karl Stamitz  "Marlborough" Sonata as well as eternal favorite Eine kleine Nachtmusik by Mozart. The program will also feature the rarely performed Divertimento in D Major for viola d'amore, violin, and violoncello by Haydn. This divertimento is from a set of fourteen Baryton trios Haydn wrote for his royal patron Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy, in whose employ Haydn spent the years 1761 to 1790.
 
What's more, these works will be performed by early music performers with these remarkable credentials:
 
Garry Clarke, baroque violin, has performed with The Academy of Ancient Music, The Sixteen, The Hanover Band and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. He has  worked on a variety of projects with William Christie and the French ensemble Les Arts Florrisants.  
 
William Bauer, baroque viola,  began his baroque studies under Joseph Ceo (University of Rhode Island) on the viola d'amore at age 14  Subsequently, he has studied baroque violin with Reinhard Goebel (Musica Antiqua Koln) and Richard Gwilt (London Baroque). He has been a soloist at the Iraklion International Festival (Crete), the Lisbon and Vancouver Early Music festivals. He lives in St. Louis where he directs the St. Louis Baroque Academy & Festival.
 
Martha Perry, baroque violin,  performs with the Indianapolis and Atlanta Baroque Orchestras, Washington Bach Consort, and Foundling Baroque Orchestra.  She was featured in the 2005 Magnolia Baroque Festival, as well as in the St. Louis, Berkeley, Bloomington, and Boston Early Music Festivals, and Italy's 2003 Musica nel Chiostro.
 
Jerry Fuller began studying the double bass at age 16 and was invited to join the Lyric Opera of Chicago orchestra three years later.  While performing in Europe, Mr. Fuller became interested in historically-informed performance practice and has achieved international recognition for his work with period instruments. A Chicago Artists Abroad grant recipient, Mr. Fuller's performances in London, Rome, Geneva and Edinburgh have been broadcast worldwide. In addition, Mr. Fuller has performed at the Ravinia and the Aspen Music Festivals and both the Boston and Berkley Early Music Festivals.
 
Pablo Mahave-Veglia  is currently a professor at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, and during the summers teaches at the Brevard Music Center in North Carolina. As baroque cellist, he often performs with Chicago's Ars Antigua and has also appeared with the Kingsbury Ensemble, the St. Louis Early Music Festival, and the Ars Femina Ensemble.
