The Repast Baroque Ensemble returns to Brooklyn Heights, and to the McKinney Chapel of the First Unitarian Church, 116 Pierrepont Street, this Thursday evening, October 18, starting at 8:00. They will present “Them Foreigners,” a program of baroque music exemplifying the fact that
[m]any Baroque composers made musical characterizations of peoples who were exotic to them, such as Native Americans, Turkish, Polish, and French. Tapping into the current national issues about immigration and racism, Repast presents a cultural flashback to relevant issues of encountering “the other” in musical discourse.
The concert will include works by Telemann, Rameau, and Guignon. In addition to Repast’s usual complement of outstanding musicians, this concert will feature Arash Noori on theorbo. You may buy tickets here.
