Music of Johan Rosenmuller

February 5, 2012

I wanted to let you know of a performance I have on Friday night.  The following is on the, Gotham Early Music Scene website.


Music of Johann Rosenmüller February 10-11, 2012 St. Ignatius of Antioch Church 552 West End Avenue at 87th Street Manhattan

Solo Cantatas and Instrumental Music Friday, February 10, 2012 at 8 pm Featuring Barbara Hollinshead, mezzo-soprano; Ryland Angel, countertenor; Cynthia Freivogel, violin leader

Vespers in the Grand Venetian Style Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 8 pm Eight singers, strings, historical brass and winds. With members of Piffaro and guest Michael Collver, cornetto

Johann Rosenmüller, though born in Germany, worked in Venice as one of the successors to Monteverdi. His Vespers music is equally glorious to Monteverdi’s on a grand scale, and his smaller scale music displays some of the finest instrumental virtuosity and melodic fluidity of the 17th century. Pre-concert lecture (included in ticket price) and other related events (Chant Camp with Susan Hellauer of Anonymous 4) will be announced at a later date.

Come out of the cold Friday night and join us!!






Recording at Drew University

August 29, 2011

I recently spent the day recording at the Drew Univeristy Concert Hall in Madison, NJ.  Had a great time – the acoustics were wonderful. Unfortunately, we had to evacuate because of the earthquake, but once we were able to get back in, we managed to complete the project. We recorded Solo Cantatas by Rosenmuller with the great alto Barbara Hollingshead and the wonderful ensemble ‘Artek‘ led by Gwen Toth. I also had wonderful surpirse when I was introduced to an old friend of mine, Trevor Weston, who is the  music chair at Drew!! Hilarious!!  Many thanks to Ellis Hilton for hosting us.
