Great Music in a Great Space: The Wingèd Lion
THURSDAY, MAY 14, 2015
7:30 PM – 9 PM, SAINT JAMES
From the early Middle Ages to the end of the 18th century, the Venetian republic was a major center of trade between Europe and the Levant. As a crossroads between the East and West, Venice became an extraordinarily fertile artistic environment. We celebrate that millennium of great cultural exchange with works from Gabrieli to Monteverdi, as well as traditional music from Armenia, Turkey and the eastern Mediterranean. The evening's program may be found here.
The Cathedral Choir and world music ensemble Rose of the Compass, led by recorder virtuoso Nina Stern, reunite in the Chapel of St. James. With its resonant acoustic and intimate size, St. James is the ideal place to experience the dazzling spatial effects of Venetian music, including divided choirs and multiple organs.
