Event Details

We'll close out our third season as we return to the Alamo City with the sublime chamber music of the Classical era. The Age of Enlightenment saw the birth of the salon, gatherings where debate and exchange of ideas was as important as conversation and socializing, and live music was almost always a part of these functions. Musicians throughout the eighteenth century viewed the making of chamber music as a social activity, and as the century progressed, chamber music took on more of a conversational quality. As you experience this concert, we think you'll come to agree with this assessment, too.  Enjoy this chamber music the way it originally was, in an intimate setting and played in a conversational manner, on Classical instruments. We’ll revel in the youthful brilliance of Mozart (his Divertimento a tre is an excellent example of the early piano trio), the humor and wit of Haydn, and the exotic, Spanish influences of Boccherini (featuring guitarist Scott Horton on the "Fandango" Quintet for Guitar and Strings), along with equally charming fare by J.C. Bach and Domenico Cimarosa.

Austin Baroque Orchestra & Chorus

Now in its third season, Settecento is an Austin-based orchestra and chorus dedicated to presenting historically informed performances of musical works from the 17th and 18th centuries. With programming that is both innovative and carefully researched by the artistic director, the ensemble’s mission is to promote early music in Central Texas.

Each season features a series of four concerts along with additional performances of chamber works. These diverse concerts can vary from a cappella Renaissance motets to large-scale Baroque cantatas, and from Classical-era chamber music to larger orchestral works. Preceding each concert is an informal talk about the music led by founder and artistic director, Billy Traylor.

In 2013, the Austin Creative Alliance (ACA) officially welcomed Settecento as their newest sponsored project. With their help and guidance, we are beginning to pursue loftier marketing and business strategies, including the ability to accept donations. While we have been able to pursue similar goals on our own in the past, the support of an organization such as the ACA will allow us to broaden our mission of bringing music to Central Texas..
