SILVIUS LEOPOLD WEISS
Oleg TImofeyev ~ baroque lute
Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute


Silvius Leopold Weiss (1687-1750), the most prolific and highly esteemed lutenist of the baroque who is reported to have rivaled Johann Sebastian Bach in improvisational skill and worked for more than three decades at the court of the Elector of Saxony in Dresden alongside French flute virtuoso Pierre-Gabriel Buffardin (1689-1768), wrote much music for obbligato, or fully written out, lute and flute. The flute part has unfortunately been lost but a new reconstruction is to be premiered in this performance. The program will also include music for obbligato lute and flute by lutenist Ernst Gottlieb Baron (1696-1760) and Friedrich Wilhelm Rust (1739-1796), a student of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach.

TREBLE VIOL, GUITAR & FLUTE
Annalisa Pappano (Cincinnati) ~ treble viol
Michael Freimuth (Kiel, Germany) ~ baroque guitar
Jeffrey Cohan ~ renaissance & baroque flutes


The treble viol was widely used during the 17th and early 18th centuries but is seldom to be heard today. This exploration of repertoire for guitar and two treble instruments features Annalisa Pappano, one of the foremost players of treble viol, pardessus de viole, lirone and viola da gamba and director of the Catacoustic Consort, and Michael Freimuth, one of Europe's most active performers on baroque guitar and theorbo.Michael Freimuth

FOUR PART CANZONAS 1585-1625
Anna Marsh ~ dulcian (renaissance bassoon)
Courtney Kuroda ~  violin
Stephen Criswell ~ viola
Jeffrey Cohan ~ renaissance flute


An in-depth exploration of the rarely-heard Italian four-part canzona, inspired by four-part
French and Flemish chansons, which blossomed in print from 1582 to 1628 concurrently with increasing
activity among violin makers and players in Milan, Brescia and Cremona, and with the emerging "baroque" style.

SONGS WITHOUT WORDS 1550-1750
Susie Napper ~ viola da gamba
Jeffrey Cohan ~ renaissance and baroque flutes


An intimate tribute to the power of song as rendered instrumentally: renaissance two-part settings of 16th-century French songs, virtuoso diminutions on Palestrina's beautiful madrigal Vestiva e colli, selections from Cima's Concerti Ecclesiastici, exquisite airs de cour from the time of Louis XIII and Louis XIV and favorite Scottish and Irish airs as rendered by 18th-century insrumentalists. Also music by Johann Sebastian Bach, James Oswald and Georg Friderick Handel.

THE ABLE VIRTUOSO
Carrie Krause ~ baroque violin
John Lenti ~ theorbo & baroque guitar
Jeffrey Cohan ~ baroque flute


Johann Mattheson's "The Able Virtuoso", published in Hamburg in 1720, sets the tone for this program of trio sonatas inspired by Corelli and the idea that Italian, French, and German styles might be fused in an integrated musical style.
