Carriage House Concert: Shirley Hunt
June 26 at 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Enjoy music by cellist and viola da gamba player Shirley Hunt this summer as part of the Carriage House Concert Series.
Internationally respected baroque cellist and viola da gamba player Shirley Hunt brings fierce imagination and integrity to the music of the Renaissance, Baroque, and contemporary eras. Praised by The Strad as “stylish and accomplished,” she embraces an eclectic musical life as a multi-instrumental soloist and collaborator.
Ms. Hunt recently released her second solo album, J.S. Bach Suites & Sonatas Vol. 2. The recording is the second installment in an ambitious three-part recording project featuring Bach’s complete cello suites and viola da gamba sonatas. Ms. Hunt’s previous recordings have been praised for her “soulful renditions,” “high-wire interpretations,” and “resonant, singing tone that stays in the mind” (Facts & Arts).
In high demand as viola da gamba soloist and continuo cellist for the Passions, Cantatas, and Concertos of J.S. Bach, Ms. Hunt has performed and recorded with the nation’s leading period instrument ensembles including Boston Baroque, Handel and Haydn Society, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Musica Angelica, and Bach Collegium San Diego. In 2011 she toured Europe and South America with John Malkovich and Wiener Akademie, and between 2008 and 2010 performed on the adapted viola and harmonic canon in PARTCH, the Los Angeles Harry Partch band.
Ms. Hunt will perform works by J.S. Bach (1685 – 1750) including Suite No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 and Suite No. 3 in C Major, BWV 1009
