About

Salut! presents a concert of baroque music with Albicastro, Herschel, Corbett, Bonporti, Frederick the Great, Hoffmeister, Haym, Sanz, Woodcock, Kircher and MacIntyre. The struggle between creativity and livelihood was a necessity Baroque composers had to balance, not dissimilar to artists today. Their collection of little-known names had passion and talent but did not make a living from composing. Musicians usually found themselves at the mercy of others to survive unless were they born into the aristocracy or had a wealthy patron. However, these composers applied their wide-ranging skills to be employed elsewhere - as scientists, diplomats, spies, artists and in the military. Circumstance may have dictated their choice of profession yet, as moonlighters, their compositions still stand out for their charm, inspiration and inventiveness. Entry Cost Adult $45 Concession $40
