Ensemble salutes early Italian composers

The work of some of Italy’s most creative early musicians will be featured by Ensemble Galatea in its program “Curiose Inventione” on Friday, March 7,
8 p.m. at California State University, Sacramento in Capistrano Hall 151.

Ensemble Galatea’s repertoire is centered on innovative Italian music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. The ensemble will perform variations and improvisations of music by composers including Biagio Marini, Giovanni Buonamente, Giovanni Palestrina, Giovanni Terzi and Francesco Corbetta. CSUS music professor Richard Savino plays the lute in the ensemble, renowned musician Monica Huggett plays violin, with Bruce Dickey on cornet, Paul Beier on lute and Gianluca Capuano on harpsichord.

Huggett tours worldwide as a soloist, director and chamber musician. She is co-founder and former leader of the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and is a professor of baroque violin. Dickey is a member of the Concerto Palatino ensemble and teaches the cornetto and 17th century performance practice.

Beir has performed internationally as a soloist and continuo player with baroque music groups. Savino directs El Mundo, a Spanish and Latin American music group and is a principal performer with several orchestras. Capuano is an organist at a Milan basilica, directs a vocal ensemble and is a musical director at the Carissimi Association.

Tickets are $8 for general admission, $5 for students or seniors and are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323. For media assistance contact the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
