Ensemble Chaconne (Peter H. Bloom, renaissance flute; Carol Lewis, viola da gamba; Olav Chris Henriksen, renaissance lute) with guest artist Burcu Gulec, mezzo-soprano, performs Measure for Measure: The Music of Shakespeare's Plays.
The concert, called "the perfect Elizabethan evening" (The Portland Press Herald), transports the audience to Shakespeare’s world. The group performs music by leading composers of Shakespeare’s time (Robert Johnson, Thomas Morley, John Dowland, and others) with songs from As You Like It, Twelfth Night, The Winter’s Tale, The Tempest, Hamlet, Othello and Macbeth. This is the last of three concerts in the Somerville Salon Series, supported in part by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
