PROGRAM NOTES

Venetian Vivaldi is one of the greatest Baroque composers. A prolific creator, he composed around 770 works, which include approximately 400 concertos and nearly 50 operas. In addition to his own personal contribution, Vivaldi is also known for his profound influence on Germany’s Bach, whose work is considered the height of Baroque music. In this concert, these two geniuses “face off” so we can enjoy their work and see how their interactions have benefited music.

PROGRAM NOTES

The poetic ambience of Saint Saëns’ song, where the violin strings and bows meld with the singing of nature and expression of the voice, is the epigraph to this concert that explores conjunction of voice with string instruments. The two female singers, along with the violin, the violoncello, and the piano in multiple different combinations, create sound atmospheres through poetic texts set to music by renowned composers like Beethoven, Brahms, Berlioz, Saint Saëns, and Falla. At the same time, we discover other jewels from lesser-played authors, such as Vaughan Williams, Frank Bridge, Bohuslav Martinu, and others lesser-known, such as Joseph Marx, Ronaldo Miranda, and composer Vally Weigl.


 

Performers:
Paz Martínez . Contralto
Joana Thomé. Mezzo-soprano
