Carnegie Hall Presents

Early Music in Weill Recital Hall

Audiences with an ear for Bach, Handel, Couperin, and Marais will be drawn to this year's series. And if that interest includes their lesser-known predecessors and contemporaries Hume, Kerll, and di Lasso, among others, then there's no better place to be. Come enjoy some of the best practitioners of this scintillating music, as well as free refreshments and conversation after the concerts.

I Fagiolini 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.

Delighting audiences for more than three decades, the Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal continues to reveal the vitality, sensuality, and emotional depth of early music. Specializing in works from the Baroque and Renaissance, the gifted group produces a wide range of tonal colors suited to whatever is being performed, entering fully into the spirit of the music with lively and spontaneous-sounding performances. The ensemble makes its Carnegie Hall debut with a program of works by Palestrina and di Lasso, two of the most prolific and versatile composers of the late Renaissance.

This concert is part of Salon Encores.
