Before Bach: Carnegie Hall Launches Month-Long Series in April and May Focusing on Late Renaissance and Early Baroque Music

This spring, Carnegie Hall celebrates the resurgence in interest in recent decades of the performance of the music of the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras. Leading this movement is a generation of performers who have devoted themselves to introducing concertgoers to the array of music written in the years before 1700, when both Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel (both born in 1685) became active composers. With great creativity, these artists have reimagined the world of music from this time, illuminating musical masterworks and bringing previously hidden corners of the repertoire to light. Carnegie Hall examines this musical movement with Before Bach, a month-long series that features thirteen concerts in April and May by some of the world’s most exciting early-music performers.

Critically acclaimed L’Arpeggiata, led by Christina Pluhar, kicks off this artistic focus on April 7–8, performing the music of Francesco Cavalli—including selections from Cavalli’s early operas—and Henry Purcell in two distinct concerts. Monteverdi specialist Sir John Eliot Gardiner concludes the series April 30 and May 1, leading lauded period-instrument ensemble the English Baroque Soloists and The Monteverdi Choir in two early Baroque masterpieces by the composer: the ambitious sacred work Vespro della Beata Vergine and a concert performance of L’Orfeo, one of the earliest operas still performed today.

In between, an amazing variety of ensembles and musicians from around the world come together at Carnegie Hall to take part in the celebration. Canadian ensembles Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Québec, conducted by Richard Egarr, delve into an all-Purcell program, featuring excerpts from King Arthur and The Fairy Queen, as well as the composer’s landmark tragic opera Dido and Aeneas featuring riveting soprano Dorothea Röschmann as the opera’s heroine (April 12). In the same week, viola da gamba master Jordi Savall performs a solo recital (April 13) and also leads period-instrument ensemble Le Concert des Nations in a program that features compositions by the forefather of orchestral music, Jean-Baptiste Lully, as well as work by other composers of the French Baroque period, including François Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and Jean-Baptiste Forqueray (April 16). Celebrated South African harpsichordist Kristian Bezuidenhout performs a captivating program of instrumental music (April 23), and Fretwork, a consort of viols hailing from the United Kingdom, performs works by Matthew Locke, Orlando Gibbons, and Henry Purcell (April 20).

Placing particular emphasis on vocal music during the pre-Bach period, the celebration features vocal ensembles Pomerium (April 9) and I Fagiolini (April 25), presenting sacred and secular glories from the Renaissance. In addition, renowned British vocal ensemble, The Tallis Scholars, are featured in two concerts. They bring vocal works by Josquin des Prez and William Byrd to their performance in Weill Recital Hall (April 18). In addition, in the spirit of passing musical scholarship from one generation to another, Tallis Scholars founder and director Peter Phillips leads a multi-day workshop for pre-professional choral singers, created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, which culminates with workshop participants joining his group for a program at Church of St. Ignatius Loyola that features a composite mass drawn from Antoine Brumel’s dramatic Missa Et ecce terrae motus and Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Missa Salve Regina, in addition to Thomas Tallis’s magnificent 40-part motet “Spem in alium” (April 17), one of the most extraordinary works of the Renaissance.

The April 16 concert by Jordi Savall and Le Concert des Nations and the April 30 program by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, English Baroque Soloists, and The Monteverdi Choir air on WQXR 105.9 FM in New York as part of the fourth annual Carnegie Hall Live broadcast and digital series, produced by WQXR and Carnegie Hall and hosted by WQXR’s Jeff Spurgeon. Concerts in the series are available for live streaming on wqxr.org and carnegiehall.org/wqxr. During every live broadcast, WQXR and Carnegie Hall will host live web chats, including Twitter commentary by the broadcast team, from backstage and in the control room, connecting national and international fans to the music and to each other. This year, the WFMT Radio Network, the classical music and arts radio distributor and producer based in Chicago, has signed on to distribute select live concerts nationally. The complete Carnegie Hall Live line-up will also be available via WFMT Radio Network to public radio stations throughout the United States and internationally as a 13-part series starting in April 2015.
