Songs without Words

April 1, 2017 @ 8:00 pm

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Presented by Cambridge Society for Early Music

With a musical approach that’s “distinctly sensualÔǪpliant, warm, and sweet” (New York Times), baroque oboist Debra Nagy expands the repertoire for her instrument with timeless songs whose emotionally-charged melodies stir the passions and inspire improvisation with echoes of jazz. Accompanied by a lush continuo band of viola da gamba, theorbo, and harpsichord, Nagy breathes new life into torch songs spanning the 17th to 20th Centuries in this program of original arrangements and improvisations. Music by Michel Lambert, Sebastian LeCamus, Jerome Kern, Nina Simone, and more.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_gallery type=”flexslider_fade” interval=”3″ images=”16170,16144,16299″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” column_number=”2″ grayscale=”no” choose_frame=”default”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
