REGINALD MOBLEY sings of War and Peace with Agave Baroque
REGINALD MOBLEY and Agave Baroque have presented their project Peace in our Time - Music of love and loss in the shadow of the Thirty Years' War, which included three concerts in San Francisco, Palo Alto and Berkley. The concerts accompany a CD release, the second collaboration between Reggie and the ensemble.
In search of suitable repertoire, it was a natural step for Mobley and Agave Baroque, which specialises in string chamber music of the 17th and 18th centuries, to delve into the dark times during and after the Thirty Years’ War (1618–1648)
"Peace in our Time" was a testament to the fact that, even under hardship, and especially in the aftermath of great tragedy and upheaval, art can flourish and offer mankind its remedial and therapeutic properties.
“It is in … dark times that we truly see the immense power that music has in its ability to motivate, comfort, and heal.”
