"The Dancing Master" BFX FRINGE

Solo Soprano Cantatas of J.S. Bach and French Dance of the 18th cent

On the closing day of Berkeley Festival Fringe, Nash Baroque and guest soprano, Jennifer Paulino, will explore with period dance troupe, the San Francisco Renaissance Dancers, influences of 18th century French dance forms on the music of J.S. Bach.  The solo cantatas of Bach are a particularly rich trove in which to find French dance forms and new connections will be sought between selected soprano arias and dances that Bach would have known.  Audiences will be transported to a time when this collaboration between music and dance flourished, illustrating what composers and dancing masters of the baroque era thought to be a perfect harmony of artistic expression.  In a more contemplative mood, the program will also include the sublime cantata for solo soprano,  “Ich Habe Genug”  BWV82a.

"The Food of Love" BFX FRINGE

This Purcell concert offers songs and solo keyboard works, showcasing his amazingly beautiful ground bass variations. The program begins and ends with “If Music Be the Food of Love” in two distinctly different versions, showing Purcell’s versatility and savvy with text. Also on the program are several of his theater songs, two devotional songs, and the beautiful and haunting “O Solitude”, one of his songs “upon a ground”. The solo keyboard works feature three of his charming suites and two poignant ground bass variations. These were the two grounds that Gustav Leonhardt performed in Paris for his final recital.

Chai Sessions: "Improvisation" curator and producer

Ever feel like you’re making it up as you go along? We know we do. Ergo, this month’s Chai Sessions is all about Improvisation. Together, we’ll witness the phenomenon that someone, using only their wits, can turn life into art before your very eyes! We’ll explore improv in story, group comedy, musical form and, with a little help from our audience, interactive form. To add a little spice to the mix, the makers of Dark Heart Chili Sauce will be sharing their unique and delicious sauces. Unlike the couch and Netflix, this art will only exist at this time and place, never to be experienced again--so don’t miss it!
