We begin with music by Hildegard von Bingen and conclude with a harpsichord concerto by Maria Teresa Agnesi. Works by Barbara Strozzi, Isabella Leonarda, and Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre will also be highlighted in this series of concerts.
Combining stirring performances with groundbreaking scholarship and led by Radcliffe Institute Fellow and Brandeis University Resident Scholar Laury Gutiérrez, the award-winning ensemble La Donna Musicale brings to life the music of female composers nearly forgotten by history, including vibrant works long overlooked or only recently discovered. Passionate arias, moving laments, and delightful instrumental music are a hallmark of their performances.
