United Methodist Church, April 2, 2006


Musica Dolce is an outreach performing ensemble of the Highland Park Recorder Society. Like their sixteenth-and seventeenth-century counterparts, the members of Musica Dolce meet to share artistic discoveries and ideas as reflected in music. Combining solo strings and winds with a harpsichord continuo, the musicians explore the vast repertory of concerti, suites, sonatas, fantasias, dances and sinfonias created by composers at the courts and in the cities of France, Italy, England, Spain and Germany. Musica Dolce seeks to recreate the spirit of an age that led composers to create complex scores, but allowed for a great deal of personal interpretation and embellishment. Share with them the pleasure and excitement of the music of the Renaissance and Baroque within the intimate ambiance of the camerata.

Musica Dolce plays sonatas, concerti and suites by members of the Bach family, Handel, Telemann, Vivaldi, Corelli, Scarlatti, Marcello, Purcell, Boismortier, Hotteterre, Quantz, and other masters of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Members of the Highland Park Recorder Society, and of the Garden State Sinfonia, its chamber orchestra, and members of Musica Dolce (recorder, cello, harpsichord, and most recently, violin) do outreach performing in the community, and for under-served populations, such as disabled children and adults, senior citizens, inner-city children, disabled New Jersey veterans, and residents of nursing homes.

Musica Dolce includes Donna Messer, recorder, Lea Karpman, violin, Janet Walker, cello, and Dean Poulsen, harpsichord.
