A Note from the Director

Early Music New York’s 43rd season opener happily coincides with the 2017 New York Early Music Celebration. Contributing to this bi-annual festival last time, we introduced works from Latin America and Spain; and two years prior, from Poland and Bohemia. This time, with a Flanders-and-Holland (‘The Low Countries
) festival theme, we will reap a bounty of rarely heard baroque and pre-classical orchestra repertoire.

Challenging research has, once again, yielded revelatory results that I’m eager to share with you, our adventurous EM/NY audience --- a harvest of tantalizing works from fields heretofore uncultivated.

Noted guest flute exponent Barthold Kuijken will perform a newly transcribed concerto by Flemish composer Henri-Jacques de Croes, and another by Dutch composer Johann Albertus Groneman. Also slated are works by Van Wassenaer, Hellendahl, Meder, van Maldere and Solnitz…though we’re not ruling out some eleventh-hour discoveries!

 -- Frederick Renz

devotes an entire evening to a single composer: the beloved and endlessly inventive “Papa” Haydn. With his unique combination of genius and geniality, Haydn developed some of the freshest, most original classical symphonies of his time, from the stormy to the sublime, while in service at the remote Esterházy estate in Hungary.
