From Ghetto to Capella

Tuesday, October 28th at 6pm, St. Paul's Chapel of Columbia University
1160 Amsterdam Avenue at 116th Street

The ghetto walls that separated Gentile from Jew in Counter-Reformation Italy were more porous than impenetrable, allowing for a rich musical dialogue and vibrant exchange of ideas throughout the baroque era. This concert explores the cross-fertilization of Jewish and Catholic musical cultures in the music of Claudio Monteverdi, Benedetto Marcello, Francesco Durante, Barbara Strozzi, Salomone Rossi, and 18th century unaccompanied Hebrew chants.

Jessica Gould, soprano & Noa Frenkel, contralto

Pedro d'Aquino, harpsichord and organ

This program is a co-presentation of Music at St. Paul's Chapel of Columbia University and was originally developed with the generous support of the Archdiocese of Florence, Italy.

Admission to this concert is free and open to the public.

We are grateful for your tax-deductible donation in support of this program. Thank you.

Denis Diderot, Rameau's Nephew

Saturday, December 13th at 8pm, The Abigail Adams Smith Auditorium
417 East 61st Street between First and York

Painting of Denis Diderot by Jean-Honoré Fragonard

Hilarity ensues at a Paris cafe when Diderot pits a hapless buffoon against a stoic philosopher in his stinging satire about the music business and high society of Enlightenment France.

Step into elegant Café Society at the dusk of the Ancien Regime, as icons tumble, gossips rumble, and musicians hurl their slings. Arrows fly between the fans of French harmony and Italian melody in this site-specific music-theater piece based on the Philosophe's play of opposites.

Pull up a chair and enjoy a glass of wine, as the game of buffoons andQuerelle des Bouffons unfold to the seductive airs of Lully, Pergolesi, Vivaldi, and the great Rameau, whose anniversary year we salute and draw to a close with this production of Diderot's witty masterpiece.

All tickets include cafe seating and complimentary vin and pain.

Starring Steven Rattazzi, praised by the New York Times as "an actor of impressive subtlety" and for "the cracked comic charm of Peter Sellers"
