The twelfth annual 2023 Salish Sea Early Music Festival presents seven programs beginning with Italian Four-Part Canzonas with Vicki Boeckman (renaissance recorders), Jeffrey Cohan (renaissance transverse flute), Lindsey Strand-Polyak (viola) and Anna Marsh (dulcian, or renaissance bassoon) on Saturday afternoon, February 4 at 7:30 PM at Trinity Lutheran Church at 18341 SR 525 at Woodard Road in Freeland.

The concert will provide an in-depth exploration of the rarely-heard Italian four-part canzona which blossomed in print from 1582 through the early decades of the 1600’s and was inspired by French and Flemish chansons from the early 1500’s. It will include music ranging from 1529, marking the beginning of commercial music printing in Europe, through 1636 at which point more “modern” stylistic forms such as the familiar sonata began to supplant the canzona, which bridged renaissance and baroque musical styles. Canzonas by Andrea and Giovanni Cima, Biumi, Canale, Buonamente, Maschera, Ardemanio, Frescobaldi and Corradini are to be included in the program alongside examples of the instrumental renditions French and Flemish songs that inspired them, all performed on recorder, transverse flute, viola and renaissance bassoon (dulcian). These copies of 16th century instruments represent a most unusual blend of instruments that may have been quite commonly heard then.


The entire 2023 festival program follows, at Trinity Lutheran Church and at the Unitarian Universalist Church, both in Freeland. Admission is by suggested donation of $20 or $25 (a free will offering), and those 18 & under are free. For additional information please see www.salishseafestival.org/whidbey.
