Faculty/Guest Artist Recital: Bay Baroque Ensemble

Event Type: Music
Facility: School of Music (MUS)
Presented By: School of Music
On Sunday, September 30th at 4:00 p.m., the USF School of Music will feature a faculty/guest recital 
by the Bay Baroque Ensemble, the leading Baroque ensemble in the Tampa Bay area.  Organized by 
long-time USF faculty member Dr. John Robison, the concert will feature USF professor Kathie 
Aagaard (viola), USF adjunct professor Anne Marie Scotto (harpsichord), guest artists Patrick Baran 
and Nicole Wendl (violins) and Theresa Villani (viola da gamba), and guest soprano Maggie 
Coleman; John Robison will perform on several instruments, including Baroque oboe and recorder.  
The faculty/guest event will feature music by some of the finest Baroque composers from the late 
seventeenth to mid-eighteenth centuries, including Johann Sebastian Bach, George Philipp 
Telemann, Alessandro Scarlatti, and Tomaso Albinoni.  Included on the program will be one of 
Albinoni’s finest concertos for oboe and strings, Scarlatti’s intriguing Sonata in C major for recorder, 
strings and continuo, Telemann’s Trio Sonata in A minor for recorder, violin, and continuo, and one of 
Bach’s finest sacred cantatas, Cantata no. 199 (“Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut”) for soprano, oboe, 
strings and continuo.  Bach’s Cantata no. 199, which is a highly distinctive sacred cantata since it 
focuses only on a solo soprano voice without a choir, attracted the composer’s attention for an entire 
decade.  Originally composed in 1714, Bach revised it twice (in 1720 and 1723), and seemed 
particularly attracted to the unusual text of the cantata, which focuses on God’s forgiveness of our 
sins.  The Bay Baroque Ensemble, which is the only group in the Tampa Bay area to consistently play 
on replicas of historical instruments at one of the most common Baroque pitches (A = 409), performs 
on replicas of the early eighteenth-century two-keyed oboe, the recorder, viola da gamba, and an 
Italian-style harpsichord.
