Arie delle donne: Barbara Strozzi & Maria Teresa Agnesi
June 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT$5 – $35
We are celebrating the 400th birthday of Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi, with her dazzling secular and sacred arias, and anticipating the 300th birthday in 2020 of Milanese composer Maria Teresa Agnesi. Her virtuosic pastoral arias as well as arias of unrequited love are full of vitality, intense emotional mannerisms and expression, stemming from her skillful use of harmony and sometimes unusual use of the semitone. These 17th– and 18th-century Italian arias are delightfully memorable, dramatically moving, and elegantly virtuosic, and Agnesi’s harpsichord concerto.
