An ensemble for early music, In Stile Moderno was founded in 2012 by Brattleboro native Nathaniel Cox (cornetto and theorbo) and Agnes Coakley (soprano). Dedicated to performing rarely-heard works of the 17th century, In Stile Moderno has been praised for its virtuosity and engaging performances.
In Stile Moderno will perform Monteverdi’s duets with soprano and cornetto, instead of the more usual two sopranos, showcasing the unique sound of the cornetto imitating and blending with the voice. The rich texture of theorbo and baroque guitar will also be featured in works by Francesco Corbetta and Bellerofonte Castaldi.
In Stile Moderno will perform for the first time with guitarist and theorbist Simon Martyn-Ellis, who will add nuanced continuo playing as well as fiery guitar rhythms.
Tickets are $25 and $10 and are available at the door. The concert will take place in the newly-completed auditorium of the Brattleboro Music Center. For more information visit www.instilemoderno.com or call (857) 268-9131.
