Rakes, Rogues, and Rascals: Men Behaving Badly in Baroque Britain
Pangea, 186 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10003
Ian Pomerantz, baritone
Ryan Closs, lute and baroque guitar
Hideki Yamaya, theorbo
Before the stiffening of the proverbial upper lip, the musical celebration of vice was a lively corner of English entertainment. From London pubs to the Royal Court and every class in between, post-Restoration Britons reveled in tales of the foppish, the caddish, the rakish, and the altogether disgraceful. Let our incorrigible musicians, bass-baritone Ian Pomerantz, lutenists Ryan Closs and Hideki Yamaya, dissolve your post-Valentine’s Day regrets in the lovely music and spicy lyrics of Purcell, Leveridge, D’Urfey, Handel, and others in the club room of the casual and classy Pangea. Huzzah!
