Mediterraneo II: More Music from Byzantium to Iberia
Friday, 21 November 2008, 7:30 PM. Pre-concert event at 7:00 PM.

What kind of music were you likely to hear if you lived, worked, and traveled around the complex and multicultural world of Byzantium? What instruments would you be playing and hearing as you traveled? If you were a musician, you’d have to be well versed in a variety of musical styles and be able to play more than one instrument. Add to this the undulations of the Ottoman Empire that were a political force in Italy and every Eastern European country for hundreds of years. See how these attempted conquests play out in musical terms!

Special Guests Kane Mathis and Ruthie Dornfeld join the Baroque Northwest Trio (Ronnee Fullerton, Elizabeth Brown, Gus Denhard) to play Traditional, Renaissance, and Baroque music from Turkey, Iberia, North Africa, and other countries.
