FEATURING: Music by PURCELL, MONTEVERDI, MERULA, STRADELLA, and HILDEGARD VON BINGEN
It can be easy to presume that the extraordinarily talented classical composers we know and love led personal lives that were as pristine as their professional successes. Even the greatest artists, however, must live with the human condition. In a program that parallels the goodness found in music with the inevitable nefariousness that exists in the world, Burning River Baroque will explore seasonal music by composers whose lives were colored with drama and scandal, alongside of works by those who led more honorable lives.
