Carnegie Hall today announced that I Fagiolini, the early music vocal ensemble scheduled to perform in Weill Recital Hall on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, has had to cancel its US tour, including the group’s Carnegie Hall concert, due to a scheduling conflict resulting from a personnel change within the ensemble. Carnegie Hall is grateful that Canadian early music vocal ensemble Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal will make its US debut on the March 5 date, replacing I Fagiolini. Led by Artistic Director Christopher Jackson, the 10-member vocal ensemble from Montréal will perform a variety of 16th century works by Orlando di Lasso, including the set of 21 spiritual madrigals entitled Lagrime di San Pietro (“Tears of St. Peter”), which the ensemble recorded for the ATMA Classique label, and the motet “Laudate pueri Dominum” by Palestrina. All tickets for the I Fagiolini concert will be honored at the Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal performance. For further ticket information, the public may contact CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800.About The ArtistsThe Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal has established a reputation as Montréal's finest early music vocal ensemble. The group was founded in 1974 by organist and harpsichordist Christopher Jackson, whose inspired leadership continues to this day. Delighting audiences for more than three decades, the Studio has brought more than 800 Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces before the public, and continues to reveal and share the vitality, sensuality, and emotional depth of early music. The ensemble's concert series has been a highlight of Montréal’s cultural life for 35 years and ranks as an integral part of the city’s lively baroque scene. The Studio has toured Mexico, France, Spain, and Luxembourg and has often appeared at the Festival International de Sarrebourg. Through frequent concert collaborations with many well-known early music instrumental ensembles—including Cappriccio Stravagante Renaissance Orchestra—the Studio has partnered with many renowned artists, such as Jordi Savall, Ton Koopman, Dame Emma Kirkby, Guillemette Laurens, Suzie LeBlanc, and Daniel Taylor. The ensemble has also performed works by contemporary composers in collaboration with such ensembles as the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec. The Studio has made 15 widely acclaimed recordings, several of which are available on the ATMA label, including Arvo Pärt: Stabat Mater, which earned the Toronto Star’s CD Pick of the Week, and Rise, O my soul, which Classics Today singled out for the “ardent, deeply-felt expression of the singers.” The Studio’s CBC recording, Heavenly Spheres, won a Félix (ADISQ) Award, and its Palestrina recording won the Prix Choc du Monde de la Musique. In January 2012, the Conseil québécois de la musique awarded an Opus Prize to the Studio’s Lagrime di San Pietro recording.Program InformationTuesday, March 5, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.Weill Recital HallSTUDIO DE MUSIQUE ANCIENNE DE MONTRÉALChristopher Jackson, ConductorORLANDO’S TEARSDI LASSO “Omnes de saba venient”DI LASSO “Osculetur me Osculo”PALESTRINA “Laudate pueri Dominum”DI LASSO Lagrime di San PietroBank of America is the Proud Season Sponsor of Carnegie Hall.
