The Naughty List: Music By Braggarts, Hotheads, Curmudgeons and Snobs
Not all composers were nice guys. Some were famously illtempered, spiteful, vitriolic, hotheaded, stuck up…. The “Naughty List” compiled by the Wayward Sisters includes just such obnoxious men: Matthew Locke, Tarquinio Merula, William Brade, Nicola Matteis, and Dario Castello—although you’d never guess it hearing their divine music.
* Edwin Huizinga replaced Wayward Sisters member Beth Wenstrom for this performance.
