Lecture Recital: "Naturally Expressed in Music"

  • The Baroque Room 275 East 4th Street, #280 Saint Paul, MN 55101 (map)

Discussing the pioneering style and popular success of Johann Ernst Galliard.

Virtuoso oboist and composer Johann Ernst Galliard was one of a wave of talented young artists who emigrated to London in the first decades of the 18th century. In a music scene that included superstars like Handel and Geminiani, Galliard was himself a formidable presence. His compositions include charming sonatas, notable forays into all-sung english opera, and music for wildly popular pantomimes that remained in the repertory through into the 1790s.
