Beginning in the 17th century one of Italy's main exports was musicians. Composers and performers, often the same person, took up leading positions throughout Europe. Lully in France, Bertali in Vienna and Matteis in London were influential as both string players and composers.
In the 18th century two cellists, Luigi Boccherini and Francesco Zappa, toured widely and eventually settled outside their native Italy. Boccherini lived in Spain during most of his career, Zappa in the Low Countries. Three musicians from Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra will perform a selection of their music for a variety of combinations of instruments from solo, to duo, to trio.
Katherine Heater, harpsichord
Anthony Martin, violin and viola
David Morris, cello
In addition to their work with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Anthony Martin and Katherine Heater have performed as Bach Se Piace the complete works for violin and harpsichord by J.S. Bach, as well as a wide-ranging selection of works by Bach's sons. Together with David Morris, as Trio Ignacio, they have performed music by Haydn, Mozart and their contemporaries Pleyel and Boccherini.
Katherine Heater regularly teaches early keyboard classes at UC Berkeley and she co-taught the University Baroque Ensemble in the fall of 2019. She teaches piano at Crowden Music Center and performs in many ensembles both nationally and internationally.
Anthony Martin also plays the classical string quartet repertoire with the New Esterházy Quartet and Bach cantatas with Cantata Collective. His student ensemble, the Stanford Baroque Soloists, performs at the end of each academic quarter at Stanford University.
David Morris is a member of Quicksilver, the Bertamo Trio and the Galax Quartet. He has performed with the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, NYS Baroque, Tragicomedia, Tafelmusik, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Seattle Baroque Orchestra, the Mark Morris Dance Group and Seattle's Pacific Musicworks. He has recorded for Harmonia Mundi, New Albion, Dorian, New World, Drag City Records, CBC/Radio-Canada and New Line Cinema.
