Bruce Dickey: “That lascivious cornetto...”

Friday, February 28, 2014 at 8:00 PM

“That lascivious cornetto...” Music for two cornetti and organ Bruce Dickey & Doron David Sherwin - cornetti Liuwe Tamminga - organ "For over two decades, Concerto Palatino, under the direction of Bruce Dickey and Charles Toet, has been leading the way in the revival of the cornetto and baroque trombone. Their highly acclaimed concerts and recordings have brought an appreciation of their important but little known music to modern audiences, and stimulated many young players to take up these instruments, practically unknown a generation ago. The cornetto is a wind instrument made of wood, covered with leather, and played with a small cup-shaped mouthpiece. Once considered "the most perfect of all musical instruments", it endured nearly a century and a half of complete neglect until it began to be revived in the 1950’s. With its warm, vocal character and extreme agility, the cornetto was a natural match for the trombone. For over two hundred years, from the beginning of the 16th century to the middle of the 18th, these instruments combined in towns, courts and churches to form a consort of rare and resonant beauty. (For more on the decline of the cornetto, click here.)  Read More
