 Modern Madrigals (3)

 

MOMA         

"The Kiss" (1908) Gustav Klimt; Österreichische Galerie Belvedere

From the 16th century on, madrigals have delighted listeners and singers with their witty reflections of life and love, often invoking imagery from nature and using the ever-suggestive 'fa la la' to emphasize the double entendre in their texts. Madrigalia pays homage to its roots in this concert featuring modern madrigals: short, secular pieces that paint a poetic text, most often involving romantic love. We are excited to perform Rochester composer, Cary Ratcliff's four madrigals based on the texts of ee cummings, commissioned and premiered by Madrigalia in 2012. John Rutter's 'Birthday Madrigals', Benjamin Britten's 'Flower Songs', Ross Lee Finney’s ‘Spherical Madrigals’ and works by Eric Whitacre and Robert Vuichard round out this spring-welcoming program.

The music of Bach has long been a favorite of Rochester audiences. Instrumentalists from Pegasus Early Music, the voices of Madrigalia, and the sonorities of the Casparini Baroque organ will combine in the acoustics of Christ Church to transport you back to Bach’s time, giving you the opportunity to hear the music in a fresh, new way, perhaps even as Bach may have heard it himself.
