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.
With a host of guests—including vocalist Lucilla Galeazzi, soprano Raquel Andueza, and clarinetist Gianluigi Trovesi—L’Arpeggiata performs improvisations and music from the Baroque, alongside the traditional South American folk music featured in their latest album Los pajaros perdidos.
Explore the pervasiveness of spiritual feeling in the Southern European Baroque with L’Arpeggiata and guests, including Ensemble Barbara Fortuna, as they trace the passion story through Corsican folk music, and sacred Italian and German music.
The entrancing rhythms of the tarantella have enthralled listeners for centuries. Here, L’Arpeggiata showcases the many sides of the “spider’s dance” with songs both modern and traditional, and composed works from the 17th century..
