Concert
Lakeville, CT: Trinity Church: A Due Stromenti-17th Century Italian Music with Two Instruments. Crescendo's season opening concert explores rarely-heard, exquisite repertoire for theorbo and harpsichord by Johann Hieronymus Kapsberger, Giovanni Pittoni and Bellerofonte Castaldi, and keyboard works by Girolamo Frescobaldi and Claudio Merulo. The theorbo is the largest member of the lute family of instruments that was developed around the end of the 16th century primarily to accompany small vocal and instrumental chamber ensembles as well as solo vocal music. Its use as a solo instrument was an afterthought, but innovators on theorbo left behind a small repertoire of high quality. Rarer still was its use as an obbligato instrument in chamber music.Hideki Yamaya, theorbo and tiorbino, and Christine Gevert, harpsichord. and organ. 4 pm. 860-435-4866  http://worldclassmusic.org/christine-gevert/→

Book signing
Annandale: Bard College: Salman Rushdie in Conversation with Joe Donahue of WAMC. Presented in association with Oblong Books & Music. In a tour de force that is as much an homage to an immortal work of literature as it is to the quest for love and family, Booker Prize-winning, internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie has created a dazzling Don Quixote for the modern age. Inspired by the Cervantes classic, Sam DuChamp, mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman obsessed with television, who falls in impossible love with a TV star. Together with his (imaginary) son Sancho, Quichotte sets off on a picaresque quest across America to prove worthy of her hand, gallantly braving the tragicomic perils of an age where “Anything-Can-Happen.” Meanwhile, his creator, in a midlife crisis, has equally urgent challenges of his own. Just as Cervantes wrote Don Quixote to satirize the culture of his time, Rushdie takes the reader on a wild ride through a country on the verge of moral and spiritual collapse. And with the kind of storytelling magic that is the hallmark of his work, the fully realized lives of Duchamp and Quichotte intertwine in a profoundly human quest for love and a wickedly entertaining portrait of an age in which fact is so often indiscernible from fiction. Sosnoff Theater, 7 pm. 845-758-6822  https://fishercenter.bard.edu/events/salman-rushdie/
