Three composers and, by the way, Bach

Critic's Choice: Classical Music

March 04, 2001|By Tim Smith

If the names Francois Chauvon, Jacques Hotteterre and Marin Marais don't ring any bells, check out next weekend's "Music in the Great Hall" concert.

Works by those three late-17th and early-18th century composers, along with a more familiar fellow named Johann Sebastian Bach, will be played on instruments of the period by a group called Tibiades. The ensemble -- John Moran on viola da gamba, Collin St. Marten on traverse flute, Billy Simms on theorbo -- takes its name from a collection of pieces by Chauvon published in 1717.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. March 11 at Towson Unitarian Universalist Church, 1710 Dulaney Valley Road. Tickets are $12, $6 students. Call 410-813-4255.
