CLASSICAL | Publick Musick with Brian Shaw 

During the baroque era, the trumpet was at the top of the instrumental tree. It was a popular instrument on the battlefield, and after the development of a more refined style of playing in the 1600's, it caught on in drawing rooms and concert halls. Contemporary trumpeters will attest that much of the trumpet writing of J.S. Bach, Telemann, and Handel is very, very difficult. When performed by the right trumpeter, though, it's also very exciting — for example, when performed by Brian Shaw, who is regarded as one of the foremost exponents of the baroque trumpet. Shaw joins Publick Musick this weekend for "The Virtuoso Trumpet" as the soloist in works by Biber, Corbett, and Telemann. He'll get a breather during performances of several baroque chamber pieces for strings alone.

You'll have two chances to hear this concert: on Friday, March 31, 7:30 p.m., at Pittsford's St. Paul's Lutheran Church (28 Lincoln Avenue); and on Saturday, April 1, 8 p.m., at Lutheran Church of the Incarnate Word (597 East Avenue). $20 general; student and low income tickets, $10; children 17 and under, free. 244-5835; publickmusick.org.
