Agave Baroque with countertenor Reginald Mobley: “American Originals”
Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.
Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2331 E Adams St. in Tucson, AZ
Presented with the generous support of the Tucson Desert Song Festival
We embark on a musical voyage to the Americas, featuring star countertenor Reginald Mobley with San Francisco-based string ensemble Agave Baroque.
Agave Baroque specializes in string chamber music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Agave has received numerous awards and accolades for its “rapturous music” (Early Music America). The ensemble has recorded two albums with Reginald Mobley, including a 2018 release entitled Peace in Our Time.
Particularly noted for his “crystalline diction and pure, evenly produced tone” (Miami Herald), countertenor Reginald Mobley is in great demand for baroque, classical and modern repertoire. Notable past engagements include European tours with the English Baroque Soloists led by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Purcell’s King Arthur with the Academy of Ancient Music in London, Handel’s Messiah with both the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the New Jersey Symphony, and several appearances with the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra.
This program features primarily baroque composers born in the Americas, along with the works of late 19th / early 20th C. African-American composers Florence Price and Justin Holland.
