The Oberlin alumni-founded early-music string ensemble, Acronym, presents their imaginative program "Dreams of the Wounded Musketeer," which tells the tale of imperial trumpeter, a member of the Kameradschaft, has been shot. Dying, the musician-musketeer’s life in Vienna passes before his eyes in a hazy dream. In his fever, he recalls the madness of the music from his childhood as the dissonant seconda prattica arrived north of the Alps. He thinks of the swirling wildness of the stylus phantasticus that characterize the music of his adult years. He remembers the battle that brought him to his final moments, and he ascends to heaven.

The program features works by Biber, Schmelzer, Valentini, Bertali, Poglietti, Pezel, Drese, and Capricornus.

This program is part of the 2022-23 Artist Recital Series.
