Houston Early Music’s exciting season-opening concert features two of the
Renaissance Era’s most important instruments: the organ, and the cornetto.
Acclaimed as the “Orfeo of the Cornetto,” Bruce Dickey received the
Historic Brass Society’s Christopher Monk Award in 2000 and was honored
with a Taverner Award in 2007. He returns to Houston with the celebrated
Dutch organist Liuwe Tamminga, a distinguished specialist in 16th and 17th
Century Italian organ repertoire. Together they will collaborate in a program
reanimating beloved Italian and Spanish Renaissance masterworks by
Giovanni Gabrieli, Palestrina, and Frescobaldi.
