Unholy Rackett - Il maestro del fagotto

Unholy Racket.jpg


Late renaissance dance suites of Imperial Austria, Baroque Venice and more.

Il maestro del fagotto (‘the bassoon master’) follows the footsteps of Spanish Renaissance composer and instrumentalist Bartolmé Selma y Salaverde, the most famous decedent of a family of bassoon makers, players and composers.

From the conservative church polyphony of Selma’s native Iberian Peninsula, to the decadent late-Renaissance dance suites of Imperial Austria where he spent his early career, and finally to the thrilling new Baroque style of Venice where he eventually settled, Selma’s works evolved as did the instrument, performed in this illuminating concert by Unholy Rackett.
