L’Arpeggiata concludes its concert series on Saturday, March 17 at 7:30 p.m. in Weill Recital Hall with Los Impossibles: Spanish and Neapolitan Music From the 17th Century, exploring early and traditional music of Spain, Portugal, and Latin America in the New World. In planning Los Impossibles, Artistic Director Christina Pluhar traveled to Mexico to find folk music that forms the connective thread between the 17th-century Spanish and Neapolitan music at the heart of this concert. Pluhar says this program recounts her ongoing search “all over the world for what we are calling the living Baroque.”In addition to these programs, Ms. Pluhar and members of L’Arpeggiata, including violinist Veronika Skuplik and cornettist Doron David Sherwin, lead two days of master classes, March 17–18, for young vocalists and instrumentalists, centering on the themes of basso continuo, improvisation, and ensemble playing. Presented by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute as part of its Professional Training Workshops for young artists, the classes also include private coaching sessions and open discussions for the participants. Founded in 2000 by lutenist and harpist Christina Pluhar, L’Arpeggiata features leading European soloists. The group joins forces with exceptional singers from the worlds of Baroque and traditional music, with a particular focus on music of the 17th century, often performed with daring instrumental improvisations. The ensemble’s aim is to revive unknown repertoire, with a focus on Italian, and Neapolitan music from the early 17th century, often reinterpreting it for new audiences. The group tours extensively, and its recordings on the Alpha, Naive, and Virgin Classics labels have sold more than 200,000 copies.Bank of America is the Proud Season Sponsor of Carnegie Hall.
