    Following its thrilling sold-out North American debut in Zankel Hall in 2010, celebrated ensemble L’Arpeggiata presents a Carnegie Hall Perspectives series from March 14 to 18—Carnegie Hall’s first-ever Perspectives to focus on early-music traditions. Under the leadership of Artistic Director, lutenist, and harpist Christina Pluhar, the ensemble—comprised of some of today’s finest European instrumental soloists—performs four imaginative concerts and leads two public master classes for young professional musicians, presented by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.

    L’Arpeggiata’s work and philosophy involves its fresh take on music from the 17th century, often spontaneously improvised and combined with contemporary musical genres that range from folk music to jazz. The ensemble is known for its virtuosic musical technique and rich sound textures, blending a variety of tonal colors that includes plucked instruments from the Baroque period and vocalizing influenced by traditional Italian music.

    L’Arpeggiata’s four Perspectives performances carry distinct, creative themes, each reflected on the ensemble’s recent acclaimed recordings. Their Carnegie Hall series begins with Los Pajaros Perdidos on Wednesday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Zankel Hall, a concert based on the ensemble’s upcoming album of the same name. The program features a number of guests, including soprano Raquel Andueza, traditional singer Lucilla Galeazzi, and jazz clarinetist Gianluigi Trovesi, performing a wide variety of music, from the improvised music of the ostinato basses of the 17th century to other improvisations and music from the Baroque, to traditional South American folk music.

    The following evening, on Thursday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m. in Zankel Hall, the polyphonic Corsican male singers Ensemble Barbara Furtuna joins L’Arpeggiata, Ms. Galeazzi, and Ms. Andueza for Via Crucis (The Way of the Cross) based on L’Arpeggiata’s 2010 recording of the same name. Via Crucis explores the pervasive presence of religious feeling in Southern Europe and the music of mystery plays. This concert is being broadcast live on WQXR (105.9 FM) and streamed on wqxr.org as part of the Carnegie Hall Live series. It is also broadcast on radio stations across the country, courtesy of American Public Media. For a video clip, please click here.

    The third program in the series, La Tarantella: Antidotum Tarantulae, offers a fascinating journey through time and geography, focusing on the style of southern Italian dance described as both sensual and festive on Friday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. in Zankel Hall. For a video clip, please click here.


    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.
