Film and Concert-Presentation of the Viola da Gamba


Thursday January 24, 2019
7:00 PM

On Thursday January 24, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. viola da gamba (viol) players from the Guild for Early Music will perform and introduce their instruments before a screening of the film, Tous les Matins du Monde (All the Mornings of the World). The 1992 film’s soundtrack includes music by two celebrated 17th-18th century French masters of the viol in a period ensemble led by the Catalan viol virtuoso, Jordi Savall. Savall and his ensemble, Le Concert des Nations, will present music from the film in their February 22, 2019 concert at McCarter Theatre Center

To give McCarter and film-going audiences more background on the viola da gamba, a consort of viols from ensembles of the Guild for Early Music will present a short concert of viol music from 17th and 18th century England and the European Continent just before the film’s showing at the Princeton Garden Theatre on January 24, 2019. The performers will also comment on the instruments and provide a viol “petting zoo” for the audience. Additional information on obtaining and learning these instruments will also be available.
