Description: The Age of Invention: Music of Italy for ‘Cello and Theorbo 17th -century Italy witnessed unparalleled musical experimentation, including the creation of new instruments and the expansion of improvisatory instrumental styles. The ensemble ScheckMate uses historic instruments to recreate – and indeed bring forward – that spirit of invention, making the music of the past a present and living tradition. The Age of Invention focuses on several remarkable talents of the era, including Domenico Gabrielli, Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger, and Girolamo Frescobaldi. Works of these and other composers bring the Italian style of the 17th century to the present.
