Musical Roots

Saturday, March 20, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Musical Roots with Jacqueline Schwab, hosted by Brad Foster

Cecil Sharp created the sound of early 20th C. English country dance through the promulgation of his published piano arrangements. But what were the musical roots of those arrangements? What did the historic source periods sound like? And how did things evolve after Sharp? This will be a personal story on the musical journey of Jacqueline Schwab, her early love of Baroque and Romantic music, the impact of Sharp’s piano arrangements, and the later influences on her personal style.
Approximate length: 90 minutes.
