CHAMBER MUSIC TRIPTYCH ~ 2019

To augment Early Music New York's GRAND TOUR itinerary,
Frederick Renz has mapped out exclusive excursions,
presenting three extraordinary chamber music events
played by virtuoso artists from abroad and from within
the principal ranks of Early Music New York's orchestra.



I. INTERNATIONAL DEBUT - Flanders/Belgium: Terra Nova Collective
      Vlad Weverbergh, Musical Director and clarinette d'amour soloist


      First Church of Christ, Scientist, Central Park West at 68th St.

    Saturday, January 19th, 2019 at 7:30 pm

A rare member of the clarinet family, the clarinette d´amour is deftly played by Terra Nova director, Vlad Weverbergh, in 18th-century works written expressly for the instrument, including:

Joseph Haydn — Quartet for Clarinet and String Trio
Henri Joseph de Croes — Partita for Clarinetto d´Amore
Carl Maria von Weber — Quintet for Clarinet & Strings

The Terra Nova Collective is a historical period-instrument ensemble and music research group based in Antwerp, Belgium. The collective seeks to breathe new life into interesting, unknown, or forgotten music on the concert platform. Their programs often present rare performances side-by-side with familiar works from the western musical repertoire.

III. PRINCIPAL PLAYERS - of the EM/NY Orchestra:  Stylus Fantasticus

Daniel Lee and Friends*

      First Church of Christ, Scientist, Central Park West at 68th St.

    Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 at 7:30 pm

The concluding concert of Early Music Foundation's Chamber Music Triptych 2019 series presents virtuoso violin repertoire by 17th-century composer-violinists including Dario Castello (1602 - 1631), Giovanni Battista Fontana (1589 - 1630), and Alessandro Stradella (1643 - 1682). Alongside the rise of the Italian baroque soloist icon, the advent and standardization of the violin in 16th- and 17th-century Italy brought about a class of violin virtuosi eager for music that could show off the full dynamic capabilities of this instrument. While Vivaldi, Tartini, Paganini, and other violinist-composers refined soloistic music for the violin, a generation of baroque composers paved the way almost a full century earlier with virtuosic music intended to push the violin to its absolute expressive extremes. Daniel Lee will be performing on violin and the five-string violoncello da spalla, featuring an early Corelli trio sonata among a plethora of fantastic and innovative composers from the 17th century, this concert thematically leads directly into EM/NY's concluding season concert of 18th century Italian works.

Enjoying a varied career as soloist, leader, collaborator, and educator, Lee is praised for his "ravishing vehemence" and "fleet-fingered, passionate...soulful performance" (The NY Times). He has appeared as soloist and concertmaster of Early Music New York among other noted orchestras and ensembles.

*Friends include: Chloe Fedor, violin; Charles Weaver, theorbo & guitar and Jeffrey Grossman, harpsichord.
