Kontrapunktus – Classical Music In the Baroque Style

On Friday , Jan. 19, 2024, the unique musical performance group Kontrapunktus will present the Londoners: An English Baroque Salute at 8 pm at the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, 11828 W Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90066

Kontrapunktus will make its long awaited return this January with five performances only of our new, glorious production, “THE LONDONERS: An English Baroque Salute.”Our rare, musical offering spotlights the brilliant artistry of composers who elevated the London music scene in the late 17th and early 18th century through the formation of a unique, scintillating sound that was a fusion of Italian and German musical styles.  This sound would evolve into what became known as Galant music, which attracted young protégés like Mozart to London, and became the precursor for Classical music.

The program will feature:
Charles Avison’s “Concerto Grosso No. 5 in D Minor (after Domenico Scarlatti)”
Nicola Matteis’ “Ground After the Scotch Humor”
Henry Purcell’s “Rondeau from Abelazer”
Carl Friedrich Abel’s “Flute Concerto in C Major, WK 46”
William Boyce’s “Symphony No. 1 in B-flat Major”
Ruaidri Dáll Ó Catháin’s “Da Mihi Manum (Give Me Your Hand)”
George Frideric Handal’s “Concerto Grosso, Op. 6, No. 10 in D Minor, HWV 328”

For information and tickets, visit the Kontrapunktus website. $20 Seniors, Students and Veterans; $25 General Admission

This performance is made possible in part by the City of Culver City and its Cultural Affairs Commission, with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment and the Culver City Arts Foundation.
