Formed in 2008, Glorious Revolution Baroque is a unique quartet of soprano, strings, and keyboard based in St. Paul, Minnesota that aspires to bring the 17th century’s rich musical expression of emotion to Minnesota audiences, presenting the full range of the period’s repertoire-from opera, cantata, and madrigal to concerti, sonatas, and suites. GRB’s artists have been praised in the press as ‘names to watch” and as a ‘major musical force.’

The 1685 Concerts

Glorious Revolution Baroque kicks off 2013 with a program dedicated to one of the most important years in Baroque music history – 1685!

Friday through Sunday, January 11 – 13, GloRev partners with the Twin Cities Lute Co-op to present the Twin Cities Baroque Festival, a mini-festival celebrating the Baroque’s most auspicious birth year – 1685, the year of Bach, Handel, and Scarlatti. However! – the festival is not just about what these giant composers created – but rather what created them. Glorious Revolution Baroque and Terzetti Lute Duo present concerts exploring the conditions that paved the way for the late Baroque’s iconic class of 1685.

With guest artists Angela Grundstad and Kim Sueoka, sopranos; Clara Osowski and Linda Kachelmeier, mezzosopranos; Brian Link, countertenor; tenors Nicholas Chalmers and Andrew Kane; and bass-baritone Jon Ten Brink; baroque violinist Jin Kim and baroque violist Jennifer Kalika, Glorious Revolution’s 1685 concert presents works composed or published in 1685 by Purcell, Lully, Charpentier, and Corelli!

Young Artists Play Bach
Miriam Scholz-Carlson invites instrumental students at any level to bring their favorite Bach to play at The Baroque Room. First come, first served. Doors will be open throughout and any and all instruments are welcome.

Terzetti Lute Duo
Joined by Twin Cities soprano Sahar Hassan, Terzetti Lute Duo performs music for two lutes and Baroque songs with lute accompaniment, in a program that illustrates the evolution of the lute through 1685 (and a bit beyond), from one-man madrigal ensemble to virtuosic soloist to dramatic improviser.
