    Die Tanzgeiger (The Dance Fiddlers) is the name of an ensemble hailing from the eastern provinces of Austria. This group uses a delightful combination of fiddles and other instruments to produce traditional folk music from Austria. These versatile tunes inspire dancing but are also valued in a concert setting. When listening to the music of the Tanzgeiger, one is transported into an atmosphere of powerful, heartfelt, and genuine music, with just the right dose of jaunty sass. People unfamiliar with authentic Austrian folk style are always surprised by its subtlety, complexity, and unusual sounds.

    Composer, and classical music reviewer for the Albuquerque Journal.  

    Was the man from Stratford who wrote the poems and plays we attribute to "Shakespeare" the actual author?  The Shakespeare Authorship controversy has been raging for years, and it is one that stands on shaky legs indeed.  A careful examination of the facts indicates  is a very complicated subject and by no means one that can be lightly dismissed.  More and more genuine research is appearing and the list of signers of the Declaration of Reasonable Doubt grows continually.  

    This class will examine the facts as we know them:

    1)  Did the man from Stratford write the plays and poems?

    2)  If not, who did?

    The Elizabethan Renaissance was England’s finest period of music composition. Such composers as John Dowland, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis and Thomas Weelkes were contemporaries of the author known as “Shake-speare” as society was undergoing a radical change from the medieval period. We’ll talk about and listen to some of the favorite works of the period.

    Baracutanga is a seven-piece band representing four different countries (Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, and the USA) that prides itself on arranging traditional South American rhythms in new and interesting ways. This kind of experimentation, blending ancestral traditions with a modern sensibility, yields an exciting and distinct Latin flavor all its own. Lyrically and musically, Baracutanga builds bridges between the south and the north. With their affinity and respect for native rhythms from the lands of their ancestors, the group finds common ground in creating songs which cross linguistic and cultural barriers.

    Just what were those troubadors really singing about? What were they smoking in-side those echoey cathedrals. Who was Guillaume de Machaut and what was he up to? Why did English music have a sound different from that of the rest of Europe. These and other questions you may not have ever thought to ask will be answered in a personal tour through the splendors and mysteries of Medieval music.
