New Vintage Baroque and Damask Ensemble – Fated Lovers Tour in NYC – Early music meets new music in an international collaboration!
February 16, 2015From February 26-March 1, 2015, New Vintage Baroque (a period instrument ensemble from New York, USA) and Damask Ensemble (a vocal quartet from The Hague, Netherlands) will present a series of concerts entitled Fated Lovers in multiple Manhattan venues.
November 14, 2014I have just recently learned about a different kind of music festival, pianoSonoma, which convenes annually in late July and early August at the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University, under the benevolent guidance of Co-Founders and Co-Directors Michael and Jessica Chow Shinn, both faculty members at the Juilliard School. People attend music festivals for different reasons, most of which are passive, unless they happen to be Tanglewood Music Center Fellows or "young professionals" at Marlboro. They go as members of the audience to hear star musicians they would not normally find in their area, or they like to continue their experiences at Carnegie or Davies Hall in some pleasant rural setting suitable for a summer holiday. Their active participation is usually limited to laying out a picnic, consuming it, a listless read of tedious program notes, uncritical applause, and coping with post-concert congestion in the parking lots, especially after a manifestation of Lang Lang or Yo-Yo Ma.
