The Grand Tour - France - Lully to Rameau

Early Music New York
Frederick Renz, director

Lully and Rameau are the twin peaks of the French baroque, masters of opera and the dance. Their instrumental suites abound with airs, allemandes, bourrées, gavottes, gigues, menuets, sarabandes and other baroque dance sensations. Works by colleagues such as Rebel (featuring his programmatic Les Elemens) round out this French experience.

A Decoration of Silence
In the late 15th century, the Renaissance philosopher Marsilio Ficino wrote that music was 'nothing but a decoration of silence', and music could bring on a 'divine frenzy' The Italian lutenist Francesco da Milano, known as 'il divino', was said to have sent his audiences into a trance and rob them of all their senses, save one, that of hearing.

Set in the 17th-century library of the House of the Redeemer, this recital by one of the world's leading lutenists transports the 21st century listener into a historical world of sensual delight.

Giulio Il Romano
A concert for Caccini (1551-1618)

From Palazzo Bardi, where the Florentine Camerata met and conjured the new form of opera, where this program was previously presented on the Salon/Sanctuary Florence series, a commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Giulio Caccini, founding member of the Camerata and one of the first composers of opera, comes to New York, performed by a Roman and Florentine ensemble.

Ensemble Ricercare Antico takes its name from the diffused compositional process of the sixteenth century which flourished throughout the 1500s and reached its apogee in the works of G. Frescobaldi (1583-1643) before merging into the genre of the Fuga.

The group, founded by Serena Bellini (recorders) and Francesco Tomasi (theorbo, lute, and baroque guitar) is a collective of various musicians and singers directed by Francesco Tomasi. Since 2007 the members of Ricercare Antico have been constantly engaged in an intense concert activity in Italy and Europe with the most prestigious ensembles of ancient music including: "Concerto Italiano", the "Freiburger Barockorchester", "Cappella Mediterranea", "Auser Musici", "L'Estravagante", "Arte Musica", "La Venexiana", "Pera Ensemble."

Ricercare Antico is dedicated to the performance of previously unheard repertoire from the transitional period between the Renaissance and Baroque. Among the future projects, a monographic program on G.G. Kapsberger entitled "Il tedesco della tiorba" and another one focused on the early compositions by B. Marini.
