Music of the Jewish Diaspora: Ghetto to Court

Presented by Music Before 1800

From the ghetto of Prague to the courts of Venice and Mantua, Jewish composers left a rich but rarely-heard legacy of Baroque music. New York Baroque Incorporated will give sound to these muted voices. Program includes repertoire of the 17th century Prague ghetto orchestra, as well as works of Salomone Rossi, Benedetto Marcello, and Felix Mendelssohn.

The Virtuosi of Cöthen

presented by Salon/Sanctuary Concerts

Saturday, October 26th, 2013 at 8:00 P.M.

The Abigail Adams Smith Auditorium  417 East 61st Street, New York, NY

Berlin’s loss was music’s gain. In 1713, the king of Prussia fired many of his finest musicians, unwittingly sending them into the employ of the court at Cöthen. Upon J.S. Bach’s arrival a few years later, he had a pool of virtuoso instrumentalists at his disposal unlike anything he had worked with before. A rich flowering of instrumental music followed. Monica Huggett will lead New York Baroque Incorporated in orchestral music from Bach’s Cöthen years, when some of the most beloved works of the baroque were produced.

Orchestral Suite No. 2 in A minor, BWV 1067
Violin concerto in A minor, BWV 1041
Concerto for oboe and violin in C minor, BWV 1060
Violin concerto in E major, BWV 1042
Triple violin concerto in D major, BWV 1064

This spring, NYBI will explore the styles of jazz, rock, and folk in the music of the 17th and 18th century. The program features Groove Theory, a concerto written for eminent baroque violinist Monica Huggett by jazz violinist Hollis Taylor in 2000. The composition features a fusion of jazz, rock, blues, and folk styles, all written idiomatically for Baroque strings and percussion, recontextualizing both the sonorities of the Baroque and the 20th century.
