New York Early Music Celebration 2013: Pro Musica Polonica

Early Music Foundation
(EMF) in partnership with the Polish Cultural Institute New York (PCI) presents the 4th-triennial New York Early Music Celebration (NYEMC) “Pro Musica Polonica,” October 4-20, 2013. An EMF Service-to-the-Field project, the Celebration (festival) showcases New York's historically-informed-performance artists, ensembles and presenters. Celebration 2013 includes select Polish artists as invited guests (with travel support by the PCI) while several New York ensembles will feature Polish repertoire. The festival includes more than twenty events in two weeks, presented by Carnegie Hall, Church of the Epiphany, Church of the Transfiguration, CUNY Graduate Center, Early Music Foundation, The Kosciuszko Foundation, Miller Theatre at Columbia University, The Morgan Library & Museum, Music Before 1800, along with self-presenting artists & ensembles.

Columbus Day - Oct. 14, at 5:00 pm - The Kosciuszko Foundation

Manuel Rosa - Columbus: Unknown History
Manuel Rosa will be presenting a lecture at The Kosciuszko Foundation de-shrouding the myth surrounding the man who discovered America.

In THE SECRET IDENTITY OF COLUMBUS: PEASANT TO VICEROY IN 33 DAYS Rosa sets out to prove that Columbus' history has never been examined or questioned, and is in fact misleading at best. Mr. Rosa's 22 year adventurous investigation involved the discovery of unknown facts regarding historical documents, the information that the supposedly Italian Columbus rarely even used the language in his correspondences, and the sheer impossibility of a peasant Columbus being able to marry into nobility and carry out his quest. In short, Columbus was no simple wool-weaver's son.

The event, an extension of The Kosciuszko Foundation's partnership with Early Music Foundation's New York Early Music Celebration 2013: Pro Musica Polonica, is sure to raise thought-provoking inquiries into our assumed knowledge of Christopher Columbus, the man! Admission - Free.

III. EAST OF THE ELBE: Telemann's Volksmusik

Saturday, March 15, 2014 at 7:30 PM
First Church of Christ, Scientist

Frederick Renz conducts Georg Philipp Telemann suites and concerti influenced by the folk music of Eastern Europe. In 1704 Telemann received an invitation to become Kapellmeister for the court of Count Erdmann II of Promnitz at Żary, in Poland. This new position allowed him to hear and study Polish and Moravian folk music, which fascinated and inspired him.  Also on the program - Johann Sebastian Bach's "Polonaise" for flute & orchestra.

17th-century Chamber Ensemble
IV. VOX SONAT: Echoes o'er the Alps

Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 7:30 PM

First Church of Christ, Scientist

In 1588, a collection of Italian madrigals was published with English words entitled "Musica Transalpina" to satisfy a new taste and voracious appetite of England's elite. This title could just as easily, or perhaps, more fittingly, be applied to the prodigious practice of Italian composer/musicians being called to foreign courts in Austria, Germany, Poland, England and Sweden.

Frederick Renz handpicks virtuoso singer soloists, engages its principal strings and continuo (lute, guitar, harp accompaniment) to recreate evocative 17th-century echoes from across the Alps.
