UCLA Early Music Ensemble – Water: Intersecting Climate and Historical Performance

Lani Hall

The UCLA Early Music Ensemble returns to live performance with the first installment in a year-long series exploring the intersection between climate and historical performance. Directed by Marylin Winkle, assisted by Danielle Stein, the series begins with a resource that has been particularly scarce in Southern California—water. The basis of human life, the water molecules we consume today are the same as the ones that flowed down the River Vigo, that raged in Purcell's Tempest, and that streamed from centuries of lovers' eyes as tears. This program dives into pieces spanning the Middle Ages through Baroque eras, featuring small ensembles of period winds, strings, voices, and harpsichord.
