2021 Seminar Series: Join us on April 12

This seminar will be primarily a playing session. HPRS’ 2020-20201 Music Director Lewis R. Baratz, Ph.D. and Guest Presenter Allen Hamrick will lead us through two-part recorder music from the 16th, 17th, and early 18th centuries. The repertory list includes arrangements of two-part pieces (bicinia) by Orlando di Lasso and Orazio Vecchi, a fantasia by Thomas Morley, three of the duets from the Fluyten Lusthof of Jacob van Eyck, and sonatas by Godfrey Finger and Jacques Paisible.

Allen Hamrick is in high demand as a performer on historical bassoons and recorder. He earned degrees at Indiana University, the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and the Juilliard School, where he studied baroque and classical era bassoons, dulcian, and recorder. He has performed around the globe, including throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, under the direction of esteemed artists William Christie, Monica Huggett, and Leonard Slatkin, among others.   Visit our 2021 Event Page for more information or to register.
