Off the Beaten Path: Musical Treasures from Around the World


Join Mountainside Baroque in their exploration of lesser-known musical riches from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. While the names of Johann Sebastian Bach, George Frederick Handel and Antonio Vivaldi are familiar to most audiences, there is an unexplored wealth of wonderful music created by a variety of composers in places such as Czech Republic, Spain and Portugal, as well as Mexico, Bolivia and Peru. Come and enjoy this special music with us in the coming season!


The 2018-2019 Mountainside Baroque season will open on at 4pm on Sunday, September 30, with music from the courts of the Austrian Habsburgs and the bishops of Kromierz (a city in present-day Czech Republic), who often exchanged the best music from their respective courts, written by composers such as Heinrich Ignaz von Biber, Johann Schmelzer, Josef Pavel Vejvanovsky and Antonio Bertali. Baroque trumpet and tympani often feature prominently in this music and will be brought to life in this performance by the University of Kentucky’s award winning 5-part Baroque Trumpet Ensemble under Dr. Jason Dovel. The concert will also feature acclaimed NYC countertenor Daniel Moody, along with a 5-part string ensemble, including virtuoso North Carolina violist da gamba Brent Wissick. There will be a pre-concert talk at 3:30pm. The concert will take place at the Shrine of Ss Peter & Paul, 125 Fayette St., Cumberland, Maryland.
