The San Francisco Early Music Society presents:
The Lost Mode: "That Which Colors the Mind— Musical Modes through Time and Space"
Annette Bauer - recorders, sarode, duduk
Shira Kammen - vielle, violin d'amore, harp
Peter Maund - percussion
Derek Wright - oud
Spanning centuries of history and great geographic regions, this unique and hauntingly beautiful concert explores the modes that are the foundation of Western music. We will delve into the soul of different modes as expressed in medieval plainsong and early polyphony, traditional Balkan, Celtic and other European melodies, and the music of neighboring Mediterranean lands, including Turkish maquam as well as Sephardic and North African song, all surviving clues pointing to the lost sound world from which our own great traditions developed.
