A Brilliant Escape (September/October 2022)

Palaver launches its ninth season with an escape into the brilliant world of early music, joined by harpsichordist John McKean. This program includes classic concertos such as Corelli’s Christmas Concerto and Geminiani’s La Folia, full of florid violin melodies and driving bass lines sure to sweep you away. Two lesser-known works by Casulana and Lusitano, originally written for voices, are full of harmonic twists and turns. We round out the program with Durante’s La Pazzia and Telemann’s aptly-named Suite La Bizarre.


“Morir non può il mio cuore” – Maddalena Casulana, arr. Jesse MacDonald

La Pazzia – Franesco Durante

Overture Suite La Bizarre – George Telemann


“Heu me domine” – Vicente Lusitano, arr. Lysander Jaffe

Concerto Gross Op. 6, No 8 (“Christmas Concerto”) – Arcangelo Corelli

La Folia – Francesco Geminiani
