Abendmusik: Italians in Vienna

Church of St. Luke in the Fields
487 Hudson Street (just south of Christopher Street), New York City
The rage for Italian music led many northern European courts to import Italian musicians during the course of the 17th century. The first to do this on a large scale was King Zygmunt III of Poland in about 1600, bringing 23 Italians north to form the core of his royal chapel. The classic example, however, is the court of the Holy Roman Emperor in Vienna, where from 1619 Giovanni Priuli, Giovanni Valentini, Orazio Benevoli, Marco Antonio Ferro, Francesco Turini, Pietro Andrea Ziani, Giovanni Battista Buonamente, Antonio Draghi, Alessandro Poglietti, and Antonio Bertali were prominent, even if Monteverdi could not be lured north. They provided music for lavish productions of opera and ballet as well as for the church and chamber. Lewis Baratz (harpsichord) joins the ensemble for this program.
Tickets available at the door: $20.00 general admission, $10:00 students/seniors.
