Lovers of early music can look forward to four nights of exquisite and diverse music next March when Christina Pluhar and L'Arpeggiata become Carnegie Hall's first early-music Perspectives artists.
Currently participating in the Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci in Germany, L'Arpeggiata performs four programs over four nights from March 14 through 17—All'Improvviso: Ciaccone, Bergamasche E Un Po' Di Follie; Via Crucis; La Tarantella: Antidotum Tarantulae; and Los Impossibles: Spanish and Neapolitan Music from the 17th Century.
Included in the program for the first concert is Cazzati's beautiful Ciaccona. Here's a taste of what audiences at that concert can expect.
