80s Dance Party with Flash & Flare, GONZO

80s Dance Party

The 80s: technology is surging, the retro styles of previous decades are making a comeback, kitsch and irony is hip, pop music embraces new electronic styles, Charlie Sheen is winning, and a TV Personality star is the residing president... or do we mean it's the 2010's?

Either way, it doesn't mean we can't party like it's the side-pony, make-up heavy, weird pantsy, side-gothy era of yesteryear! Get down with Flash & Flare + Gonzo for a night of dancing, drinks, and really really big hair.

The Pour

Great Basin Baroque Concert

A historically-accurate performance of baroque music from 17th Century France. Hear the work of Marin Marais, Antoine Forqueray, and Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre for violoncello and harpsichord. About the Performance Gambists Marin Marais and Antoine Forqueray were both household musicians of Louis XIV. The playing of each were reported a generation later by the eccentric commentator Hubert Le Blanc as, respectively, like an angel and like a devil. In Marais, he wrote, we find the perfection of variety of bow-strokes and graces in small dance and character pieces; in Forqueray, a larger-than-life personal expression in drawn-out preludes and sonatas, verging on the "crotchety, fantastic, and bizarre." Sadly, all that remains of the work of Forqueray are a few suites of dances ostensibly copied from the originals as well as transcribed for harpsichord solo by his son. Nonetheless, these pieces provide a small window into an intriguing musical personality that indeed contrasts dramatically with that of Marais, whose printed works have fortunately been carefully preserved. The harpsichord works of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, herself a member of Louis XIV’s musical establishment, provide an appropriate and elegant foil to the polarity of the two gambists. Unlike them, however, suites of dances or character pieces for her own specialized instrument represent only a fraction of her musical output, alongside cantatas, operas, and violin sonatas.
