Chiaroscuro: Music from Seventeenth-Century Italy

Jessica Gould, soprano
Nigel North, theorbo

Chiaroscuro: Music from Seventeenth-Century Italy

Works sacred and secular by Caccini, Castaldi, Frescobaldi, Kapsberger, Merula, Piccinini, Luigi Rossi, and Sances from the dawn of the tumultuous seventeenth century.


The Arts at Rowan

Soprano Jessica Gould has been noted for “a dramatic intensity that honored the texts” (The New York Times), “gorgeous melismatic singing (Voce di Meche) and for “beautiful interpretation” (The Lute Society of America Quarterly). Her recordings for MV Cremona include I Viaggi di Caravaggio with lutenist Diego Cantalupi and I Diletti di Mazzarino with Ensemble L’Aura Soave Cremona. Additional CDs include projects with New World Records, Naxos, Da Vinci Classics, and Centaur. Radio broadcasts include WQXR, NPR, WPBR, and WKCR, among others. Recitals of early music include the Rowan University College of Performing Arts with Nigel North and the Sorbonne recital series at Villa Finaly in Florence with guitarist Pascal Valois. Previous soloist appearances as chamber musician include the Cassatt Quartet at the Guggenheim Museum Works & Process Series, the Clarion Society, and the Four Nations Ensemble, among others in the United States, and abroad with L’Aura Soave Cremona at the Teatro all’Antica di Sabbioneta, Villa Finaly – La Chancellerie des Universités de la Sorbonne, the Great Synagogue of Florence, Palazzo Bardi, the Istituto Francese of Florence, and the Library of San Marco and Palazzo Davanzati with Musica Ricercata. With Cantalupi she has performed at the Cappella di San Luca of Santissima Annunziata in Florence, Palazzo Ducale of Sassuolo, and in New York on the La Serenissima Festival of Carnegie Hall. As artistic director of Salon/Sanctuary Concerts, her programming has been praised as “impeccably curated” by Time Out New York, “highly original” by The New York Times, and “imaginative” by New York Magazine. Honored with a residency at Villa Finaly, the Florentine home of the Sorbonne, she is tasked with researching, programming, and performing original concerts, and is the only American ever invited to create programs for four notable Florentine institutions: Palazzo Bardi, Palazzo Gondi, Palazzo Guicciardini, and L’Associazione per Boboli.

Lute and theorbo player Nigel North was initially inspired into music at age 7 by the early 1960s instrumental pop group The Shadows. He studied classical music through the violin and guitar, eventually discovering his real path in life, the lute, when he was 15. Primarily self-taught on the instrument, he has (for over 30 years) developed a unique musical life which embraces activities as a teacher, accompanist, soloist, director, and writer. Some touchstones on the way include the publication of a continuo tutor (Faber 1987) as well as his passion for the music of J. S. Bach. The four-volume CD collection Bach on the Lute was recorded on the Linn Records label (1994-97) and is now available as a four-disc box set. The ensemble Romanesca was formed by North together with Andrew Manze (violin) and John Toll (harpsichord and organ). For 10 years (1988-98), the group explored, performed, and recorded seventeenth-century chamber music, winning several international awards for their recordings. For over 20 years, North was professor of lute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London; from 1993 to 1999 he was professor at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin; from 2005 to 2007, he was lute professor at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag, Netherlands; and since January 1999, North has been professor of music (lute) at the Jacobs School of Music’s Historical Performance Institute. Other recording projects have included Robert Dowland’s A Musical Banquet with soprano Monika Mauch for ECM (2008), Lute Songs with tenor Charles Daniels for ATMA (2007), and the Lute Music of Robert Johnson for Naxos (2010).

Port Mande at National Sawdust

Mark Dover, clarinet
Jeremy Jordan, piano

The duo Port Mande – clarinetist Mark Dover and pianist Jeremy Jordan - performs at National Sawdust on Saturday, April 6 at 7 pm. The program features music composed by each of the members of the duo in a range of styles. Mark Dover said, “Our original music runs the gamut from jazz, electronic, hip hop, and newsoul, to definite but veiled touches of contemporary classical.”

Also featured are concert works, including Dover’s arrangement of Schumann’s Dichterliebe as well as a 2017 piece for clarinet and piano by Jonathan Ragonese, commissioned by Dover.

Port Mande will perform music with and by guest artists, including soprano Faylotte Crayton and rapper POES. “The evening will have a variety show vibe,” said Dover, “as we announce music from the stage and call up guests to join us.”

Tickets are $25 for general admission and are available at nationalsawdust.org. National Sawdust is located at 80 North 6th Street in Brooklyn.

An die Musik Presents: Kylwyria

Kylwyria:
Erica Dicker, violin
John Gattis, horn
Julia Den Boer, piano

Brahms: Horn Trio in E flat, Op 40
Ligeti: Trio for Violin, Horn and Piano

Comprised of three forward-thinking musicians, Kylwyria actively pursues collaborations with living composers and illuminates work written since Gyorgy Ligeti's seminal Trio for Violin, Horn, and Piano (1982). Taking their namesake from a make-believe country Ligeti invented and "maintained" throughout his childhood, Kylwyria seeks to expand the repertoire for Horn Trio by representing the dynamic voices of today's composers and musical innovators.

The Grand Tour: Italy - Corelli to Vivaldi

Early Music New York
Frederick Renz, director

Early Music New York concludes its Grand Tour with spring in sunny Italy, where the light that pervades its visual art suffuses its music as well. Corelli and Vivaldi concertos, sinfonias and overtures will frame a program enriched by contributions from such composers as Domenico Scarlatti (his virtuosic keyboard sonatas recast as concerti grossi by Charles Avison).

Colorado MahlerFest XXXII

One day in the 1970s, Robert Olson was reading a Mahler biography while sitting at the shore of Lake Dillon near Breckenridge, Colorado - a favorite spot framed by the magnificent 14,000 foot peaks of the Rockies.

Olsen had studied conducting with Hans Swarowsky in Vienna, where he had been deeply moved by the funeral march from Mahler's Symphony No 5 played at the Austrian president's funeral.

Olsen realized that this beautiful Colorado landscape was not unlike Mahler's summertime composing environs, and it was then that he conceived the Colorado MahlerFest.
