The Presence of the Past

Friday, August 24 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: Rines Auditorium
Audience: Adults, Seniors

When vividly recalled, the past becomes present, not bygone, but by (with) us. The present, likewise, can revive the past, not as a dead reflection but as through a window in time.

In this program, ScheckMate revives music of the past that suggests the future (by Giovanni Bononcini). By way of 19th-century works of transition (including Weber), they complete the circle with contemporary works that suggest the past (including Bachianas Brasileiras #5 by Villa-Lobos).

ScheckMate is made up of Raffael Scheck, ‘cello & Timothy Burris, lute and guitar.
