Dark Horse Consort: Ye Old Song and Dance

The early music ensemble Dark Horse Consort is dedicated to unearthing the majestic late renaissance and early baroque repertoire for brass instruments. Inspired by the bronze horse statues in Venice’s famed St. Mark’s Basilica, the ensemble attempts to recreate the glorious sounds of composers such as Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi and Heinrich Schütz. Dark Horse often expands to include vocalists and strings, which when combined recreates the rapturous kaleidoscope that was the sound of the early 17th century instrumental ensemble.

The Stradella Incident: Stradella, Lully, Bononcini and Venetian Songsters

As Stradella stayed just one step ahead of the assassins that pursued him most of his days, he lived a thrilling paradox. He was the most famous musician in Italy while a fugitive, living in the shadows when not entertaining Popes and princes. After a narrow escape from death at the hands of one jealous husband’s hitmen, the head of the house of Savoy enlisted her nephew, Louis XIV, to punish the goons. Divine art from a diabolic source makes for a compelling story, and we’ll illustrate one of the more exciting episodes in music history with Stradella’s incomparable and thrilling chamber music, alongside some thrilling theatrical bits of Lully. It’s the seventeenth century as you’ve never heard it before!
