Antique sounds


March 06, 1997|By Stephen Wigler

Some of this area's finest performers of early music on authentic instruments will join forces tomorrow and Saturday in the Music in the Great Hall series at Towson Unitarian Universalist Church. Viola da gambist Ann Marie Morgan, baroque violinists Richard Luby and Allison Guest Edberg, bass viola da gambist Lauri Bennett and theorbo player William Simms will perform music by Archangelo Corelli, Marin Marais and other French and Italian baroque composers.

The models of antique instruments on which the musicians perform are recognizably the antecedents of those we play today. But their quaint shapes are matched by unusual, unconventionally -- at least to late-20th-century ears -- beautiful timbres.

Performances take place tomorrow at 8: 15 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. at Towson Unitarian Universalist Church, 1710 Dulaney Valley Road (1.3 miles north of Beltway Exit 27). Tickets are $12; $6 for students. For information or to reserve tickets, call (410) 813-HALL.
