On Friday evening, April 21st, we went to the Charles Allis Museum to hear a concert by the Madison-based Wisconsin Baroque Ensemble. The group this evening consisted of soprano Mimmi Fulmer; Brett Lipshutz, taverso (transverse flute); Nathan Giglierano, baroque violin; Eric Miller, viola da gamba and treble viol; Sigrun Paust, recorder; Anton TenWolde, baroque cello; and Max Yount, harpsichord.

The first part of the program consisted of the Quartet for two traversi, recorder, and basso continuo, TWV43:d1, by Georg Philipp Telemann; Pieces de violle, suite #3, by “M. de Machy”; “Lasciatemi qui solo,” by Francesca Caccini; and Sonate en trio for two traversi and basso continuo, opus 13, #3, by Jean-Baptist-Quentin. All these pieces were played and sung beautifully. All except the Telemann were new to us, and we were particularly interested by the solo suite for viol da gamba by de Machy, and the song by Francesa Caccini.

The second half included “Interrote Speranze,” by Johannes Hieronymous Kapsberger; Sonata a trio for recorder, violin, and basso continuo, by Johann Cristoph Pepusch; Telemann’s Nouveaux Quators, #6 in E-Minor; and “Odi, Euterpe,” by Giulio Romola Caccini. In this set, again, the pieces featuring the viol da gamba were particularly interesting, since the viol parts could almost be described as “sprightly,” which is unusual for this instrument. The final piece, which featured Ms. Fulmer accompanied by the complete ensemble, was quite beautiful.

This was a very interesting and enjoyable concert. We look forward to the company’s November concert.
