  • Perspectives: L’Arpeggiata

    L’Arpeggiata has forged unusual artistic paths that bridge the old with the new, finding new ways to re-imagine the French, Italian, and Spanish Baroque music that forms the core of its repertoire.

    Led by Christina Pluhar, this collective of inventive musicians made its North American debut in 2010 to a sold-out house in Zankel Hall, and returns in 2011–2012 for a four-concert Perspectives series—the first time Carnegie Hall has invited an early-music group to participate in this artistic initiative.

  • L'Arpeggiata's Perspectives concerts are included within these series:

    Chamber Sessions I >
    Early Music in Weill Recital Hall >
    Baroque Unlimited >
  • With a host of guests—including Ensemble Barbara Furtuna, vocalist Lucilla Galeazzi, soprano Raquel Andueza, and clarinetist Gianluigi Trovesi—L’Arpeggiata performs rollicking improvisations that owe as much to Baroque as to jazz and other genres. Together, they combine Corsican folk music with sacred Italian music, explore the many sides of the tarantella dance, and revive the Spanish and Neapolitan Baroque tradition. And L'Arpeggiata shares its vision for multi-century musical explorations with young musicians through two days of intensive master classes.
