East-West “Crossover”

The Pacific Northwest is home to countless fans of historical novelist Dorothy Dunnett, and November 6th’s Seattle appearance by Capella Romana offers them a great opportunity to add a soundtrack to her swashbuckling seven-volume series The House of Niccolò. Alexander Lingas’ program consists entirely of music which might have been heard by Dunnett’s adventurous 15th century characters in their home town of Bruges in the Low Countries and on their forays abroad to Venice, French-ruled Cyprus, and far Trebizond. Find out more about the recital at www.capellaromana.org
