Join Long & Away as we embark on a musical tour of Spain, Italy, Germany, England and France. Music for the viola da gamba took many different forms throughout the 17th century. This program includes consorts, rousing dances, heartfelt consort songs and joyful madrigals by composers such as Byrd, Monteverdi, Schutz, Marais, Ortiz and others. Joining the ensemble is Gerrod Pagenkopf, praised for his "gorgeous mellifluous" singing. Set in a beautiful home in the stunning Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, this house concert will offer gorgeous music, light refreshments and an opportunity to meet and mingle with the musicians.
