Trio Settecento Celebrates 20th Anniversary
​by Kyle MacMillan

Trio Settecento’s roots date to 1996, when, at the invitation of Chicago-based Cedille Records, Rachel Barton Pine recorded an album of Handel sonatas for violin and continuo that had been under-represented on disc. To accompany her, the violinist turned to two veteran musicians with whom she had studied historically informed performance practices — David Schrader and John Mark Rozendaal, mainstays of the Chicago early-music scene at the time.

Outreach in Action

On Saturday, February 10th, a cast of children and teens in period costume brought the 17th century to life with fencing, dancing, and music of the time. This all-ages performance of scenes from the life of Queen Christina of Sweden was co-presented by Seattle Historical Arts for Kids and Early Music Seattle in partnership with the Nordic Heritage Museum, and is supported in part by Early Music America's Outreach Grant program.

What is an important piece of advice you give to students just beginning with early music and/or performance practice?

You’ve just got to have some people to play with! I always try to convince students to form quartets with others who play at their same level and to make a schedule of weekly meetings. What I enjoy most about early music is the social aspect, and I think you can’t really get seriously started without a sight-reading group of your own.
