      Sonata à Quattro: A Dark & Stormy Night

      Join us for a program of dark and stormy pieces! Sonata à Quattro's 3rd Season opens with a program exploring the darker side of human experience, from Vivaldi's motet, burning with godly rage, to Bach's secular Cantata, deploring the departure of a beloved friend. Quantz' bubbly Flute Quartet in D Major provides some needed moments of optimism, before we turn to the poignant, brooding Barrière Cello Sonata. Even the viola gets a turn, in the Telemann, to unfold a haunting saga of tragic beauty. But the composers do not leave us in despair; each one leads the listener through the dark night of the soul, to the morning after. Bonus: the Bach Cantata opens with an awesome instrumental Sinfonia that is not to be missed! SAQ is so pleased to welcome flutist Linda Pereksta, a consummate artist who shines in the Quantz, Telemann, and Bach. Program: Motet: In furore iustissimae irae, RV 626 by Antonio Vivaldi Quartet No. 1 in D Major by Johann Joachim Quantz Cello Sonata in C Minor, Book II No. 6 by Jean-Baptiste Barrière Concerto à 4 in D Minor, TWV 43:d2 by Georg Philipp Telemann Cantata 209: Non sa che sia dolore by Johann Sebastian Bach Sonata à Quattro Performers: Christine Hauptly Annin, violin Nathan Giglierano, violin Marika Fischer Hoyt, viola Charlie Rasmussen, cello Daniel Sullivan, harpsichord Kristin Knutson, soprano Special guest artist: Linda Pereksta, flute
