Thanks to John Schaefer, the host of “Soundcheck” and “New Sounds” on New York Public Radio, for his “Gig Alert” recommendation of the sold-out Christmas Day performances of our Burgundian Christmas program!

Some of his commentary:

“If you’re heartily sick of hearing Christmas music by now, we’ve got a show for you. Early Music New York, a veteran ensemble led by Frederick Renz, is doing a concert of music by some of the great Renaissance composers of northern France and the Lowlands.”

Maestro Renz
Maestro 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.

The Concert, Lionello Spada  c. 1615
The ‘new’ Italian style of Monteverdi and his contemporaries, blossoming at the turn of the 17th century, quickly made its way across the Alps, as Italians were engaged by Austrian and German courts. In addition to Monteverdi, composers will include Carlo Farina, whose Capriccio stravagante feat
ures a veritable carnival of the animals.
