Join us for our 29th season!
Celebrate Monteverdi’s 450th birthday, Bagatelles and Impromptus with David Breitman, Beiliang Zhu returns, and a fanfare with music for winds and strings.
October 20/21, 2017
We celebrate the 450th birthday of this 17th century giant with a program of his dramatic and expressive madrigals, and virtuoso instrumental music by his contemporaries. The program will include the magnificent madrigal for 6 singers, 2 violins, and continuo Hor che’l ciel, the lively and virtuosic ciaconna for 2 tenors Zefiro torna, the passionate madrigal Si ch’io vorrei morire, among many other of our favorite Monteverdi. You’ll also hear instrumental music by Castello, Merula, and Marini, including two sonatas named in honor of Monteverdi. We’ll end the celebration with a birthday cake reception!
