  • Perspectives: L’Arpeggiata
    Christina Pluhar, Artistic Director

    An inventive collective that constantly finds new ways to re-imagine the French, Italian, and Spanish Baroque music that forms the core of its repertoire, L’Arpeggiata is the first early-music group to participate in a Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall.

    Its four-concert series combines Corsican folk music with Italian music, explores the many sides of the tarantella dance, and revives the Spanish and Neapolitan Baroque tradition. L’Arpeggiata also shares its vision for multi-century musical explorations with young musicians through two days of intensive master classes.

    Stay tuned in the lead-up to L’Arpeggiata’s March 2012 concerts and workshops, as we add more interviews, thrilling performance videos, and written blog posts.
