Meantone Magic: Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas

Sunday April 10 8:30 PM

University of Southern California
Music Salon at the Hancock Memorial Museum, adjacent to Newman Recital Hall
Entrance #3 off Figueroa Blvd.

Purcell's Baroque masterpiece bristles with Technicolor microtonal harmony — when tuned in the original meantone tuning. This chamber performance of the entire one-hour opera will be preceded by meantone masterpieces of John Dowland, William Byrd, György Ligeti, and Michaelangelo Rossi on lute and harpsichord.
