OCTOBER – MUSIC OF THE ITALIAN BAROQUE
In this concert, we will perform two oratories of our name’s sake Carissimi: Jonah and Jephte, probably his best known to our audiences.
Come hear the lively Jonas and the Whale and the stunning Jephte with Linh Kauffman singing Jephte’s daughter. Lutenist Cameron Welke joins the ensemble this season with solo works of Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger.
These concerts will also be in collaboration with Michael Barone and the Twin Cities American Guild of Organists chapter. These guest organists will perform various works from the early Italian baroque period (Frescobaldi, Rossi, Merula, Storace, Alessandro Scarlatti) and other European composers with Italian connections (Froberger, Kerll, Muffat).
