Lincoln Friends present Baroque concert Friday
By Bill Roberts
The Lincoln Friends of Chamber Music will present
Secolo Barocco, a quintet from France, Friday at 8 pjn.
in the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery Auditorium. The
concert is free for subscribers to the Lincoln Friends, but
tickets at the door will be $4 and $2.50 for students.
Secolo Barocco, founded in 1965, is devoted to
chamber music of the Baroque period exclusively in the
original instrumentation. The name means "the Baroque
century", and all the pieces to be performed Friday were
composed in the 1 600s and 1 700s.
The musicians of Secolo Barocco are Amaury Wallez,
bassoon, Jacques Chambon, oboe, Jacques-Francis
Manzone, violin, Michel Debost, flute, and Joel Pontet,

French, Italian styles
The French and Italian styles of Baroque music will be
represented in Friday's concert, Potter said. Concerto a
5 P. 342 in G Minor "La Notte", by Antonio Vivaldi, is
in the simple and hearty Italian style, he said.
In the more "refined and ornamental" French style are
Quintette in E Minor (a 5), by Jean-Baptiste Loeillet,
Trio Op. 66 No. 2 in G Minor, by Francois Devienne,
Pieces en Concert No. 5 (a 5), by Jean-Philippe Rameau,
and London Trio No. 1 in C Major, by Josef Hayden.
Quintet in D Major, by Johann-Christian Bach, also will
Chamber music was first played in private homes
during the period of Baroque music, Potter said. Friends
would drop by someone's home with a flute in one hand,
the newest composition by Bach in the other, and have a
concert, he said.
The music of Secolo Barocco and the small (about 300-
seat) auditorium at Sheldon will give Friday's concert
audience the same kind of intimate contact with the
performer, Potter said.
This will be the third concert this season sponsored by
the 3 10-member Lincoln Friends. It is the 1 1th season for
the self-supporting group, which sponsors five concerts
"We're just a group of private individuals who have
banded together to put on chamber music," Potter said.
Chamber music has gained popularity in the Midwest
and throughout the country. Potter said, and even with a
limited budget it is possible to sponsor top groups.
The two remaining concerts this season are the Tel
Aviv Quartet with Yona Ettlinger, on Feb. 14, and the
Amadeus Quartet on April 23. '
Next year, he said the Lincoln Friends have booked the
prestigious and popular Juilliard String Quartet.
