Thoroughbass and Human Nature: Chamber Music in the Time of Jane Austen

The students of Music 450 (Favorite and Forgotten Music of the Chamber, 1760-1825) will present a recital of chamber music from the time of Jane Austen written by wildly popular composers who are little-known today. Each tuneful work will be introduced by an excerpt from an eighteenth-century letter or novel. Audience members are encouraged to come and go as they wish in celebration of eighteenth-century musical life—a time when music was made spontaneously, with friends, and for the enjoyment of the players and the audience.
