Where: Goldberg Formal Lounge, Danforth University Center (Washington University campus)
When: Tonight at 7:30 PM
Why: Jennifer Nitchman (flute), Michelle Duskey (oboe), Andy Gott (bassoon), and Maryse Carlin (harpsichord) get together for an evening of music by Couperin (Suite No. 2 in A minor for harpsichord c. 1660), Zelenka (Sonata No. 2 for flute, oboe, bassoon, and continuo in G minor, 1720-1722), Telemann (Trio in E minor for flute, oboe, bassoon, and harpsichord, 1733; Sonata in A minor for oboe, bassoon, and harpsichord, TWV41, 1728), Fasch (Sonata in C Major for bassoon and harpsichord, 1720), and Bach (Sonata in G minor, BWV 1020 for flute and harpsichord, before 1735).
Admission is free (which is a plus) but the real attraction is the performance space. This is music that was written to be performed in formal drawing rooms and other small spaces. The Goldberg Formal Lounge should be just the right size to let you appreciate how this music was intended to be heard. The event is part of the Danforth University Center - Chamber SeriesFor more information: 314-935-5566 or
