Texas Early Music Project

For over a century the famous Schirmer volume, 24 Italian Art Songs and Arias, has introduced millions of young singers to Italian music and is a staple of solo & ensemble contests around the nation. Designed in the same mode as TEMP’s educational outreach program to Austin-area schools, our concert presentation re-imagines the songs from this enduring and beautiful vocal literature in the style of a soap opera with international heritage. Featuring such hits as “Caro mio ben”, “Per la Gloria”, “Che fiero costume”, and more, six of TEMP’s virtuosic soloists, assisted by a small continuo group and orchestra, spin a classic soap opera yarn (you know: totally believable!) using these very well-known “hits” from 17th and 18th century Italian opera and chamber music. Highly presentational, unapologetically virtuosic, and entirely entertaining, this is a performance of timeless drama and very timely comedy! Love! Passion! High notes!

Monteverdi Vespers of 1610, and it’s just in time to celebrate his 450th birthday–May 9, 1567. Claudio Monteverdi was a major power in the transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque, and his Vespers of 1610 includes elements of both musical eras. The Vespers is a powerhouse of widely diverse styles from beginning to end, ranging from virtuosic solos and duets to exuberant double-choir pieces in a glorious fusion of late Renaissance and early Baroque styles. The 27-voice chorus includes guest soloists tenor Ryland Angel, bass Peter Walker, and tenor Temmo Korisheli. The rest of the many soloists are part of TEMP’s core singers, including Gitanjali Mathur, Jenifer Thyssen, Cayla Cardiff, Brett Barnes, and more. The expanded early Baroque orchestra includes 3 cornetti, 3 early trombones, bowed strings, and an amazing continuo section of 3 theorbos, harp, portative organ, and harpsichord.

Musica Sacra San Antonio

Musica Sacra San Antonio

Musica Sacra San Antonio, under the direction of Owen Duggan, will perform CPE Bach's choral-orchestral masterwork, Magnificat with guest soloists and members of the University Chorus of Our Lady of the Lake University. Soloists include Angela Malek, soprano; Crystal Jarrell, alto and Carr Hornbuckle, tenor. In the manner of his father JS Bach's Magnificat, passions and Mass in B minor, CPE's work is a grand, exhilarating gesture of choral polyphony, rarely performed due to the extreme virtuosity required of the orchestra, choir and soloists. Known as the 'Hamburg Bach,' CPE (Emanuel Bach) renders exquisite, cantabile phrases believed to have inspired Mozart, who in turn described him as "the father of us all." The program will also include Gabriel Faurė's sublime Cantique de Jean Racine and the "Agnus Dei" and "Dona nobis pacem" from JS Bach's Mass in B minor.

From meditative chant to rousing polyphony, TEMP explores the groundbreaking music of Leonin and Perotin of the 12th-century School of Notre-Dame, whose musical innovations are the foundation for almost all the music we enjoy today in the Western world. TEMP is proud to collaborate with Dr. Rebecca Baltzer, recognized worldwide as an expert on the music of Notre-Dame Cathedral during the Middle Ages. Though solemn, a sense of joy and celebration permeate this music, echoing the ecstasy of the Marian movement during the 12th and 13th centuries. Rhythmically complex polyphonic pieces known as organum act as a wonderful complement to the dance-like conductus and the even older plainchant. We also include a few works that reveal the lighter sides of the lives of the monks with semi-secular works featuring vielle player, Mary Springfels, and harpist, Therese Honey. Guest artists Temmo Korisheli (California) and Ryland Angel (New York) join some of Austins best singers, including Jeffrey Jones Ragona, Steve Olivares, David Lopez, Tim OBrien, and others.

TEMP puts its unique stamp on joyful carols and lullabies from Western Europe and the British Isles, with arrangements for solo voices, small chorus, harp, violin, flute, mandolin, viols, and lute. The familiar theme of the Nativity from the shepherds perspective figures prominently in most early music Christmas repertoire, as does the motif of Mother and Child. We present our own arrangement of two Nativity pastorals from 1684 by Marc-Antoine Charpentier and the choral masterpiece for 8 parts, Nesciens mater, by French composer Jean Mouton. There are lively works from Spain, thoughtful, pensive works from France, and of course, a little taste of Celtic and English influences!

These indigenous peoples spoke an array of languages, and the colonizers used their knowledge of these languages in their conversion of the natives to Catholicism. Our fifth annual program of Latin American music will include a wide variety of sacred pieces from 16th- and 17th-century Spain, Mexico, Guatemala, and Bolivia, with texts in Nahuatl, Quechua, Chiquitano, Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin, including works by Gaspar Fernandes, Juan de Arajo, Antonio de Salazar, Toms de Torrejn y Velasco, Filipe da Madre de Deus, and the ever-popular Anonymous.

Songs of the Sephardim: Love, Lament, and Loss Expelled from Iberia in 1492, the Sephardim created haunting music that reflected their longing for return to Iberia while adapting their traditions and music to their new homelands. Sephardic music is at once beautiful and haunting, fun and poignant. TEMPs performances of these songs of love, jealousy, loss, and comedy are one of Austins not-to-be-missed events. Most of us are familiar with the effects of love and its cousins, pain and jealousy, but to hear music from the last 500 years deal with this subject in simple, yet excruciating beauty, illustrates how our emotions arent so very different from those of the Sephardic exiles. TEMPs unique and creative arrangements, soulful vocal solos, and ensemble pieces explore this music, accompanied by the exotic textures of a hybrid Medieval/Middle Eastern instrumental ensemble. The program includes some favorites from the TEMP Sephardic repertoire (La serena, La rosa enflorece, Puncha, puncha, and the erotically charged song Noches, noches) and many newly-arranged songs and dances. International recorder player and world music specialist Nina Stern (New York) joins us for this concert, along with Bay Areas Peter Maund, specialist in early and ethnic percussion. Houstons Therese Honey (harp) joins oud player Josh Peters, Scott Horton, John Walters, Kit Robberson, Bruce Colson, and Stephanie Raby in the instrumental ensemble. Our singers are Gitanjali Mathur, Stephanie Prewitt, Jenifer Thyssen, Cayla Cardiff, Gil Zilkha, and Daniel Johnson. From the passionate, tragic love songs to songs of fantasy and gaiety, this alluring musical genre will capture your imagination and captivate your heart.

Los Tonos Humanos

September 21st, 2016, 7:00PM

Los Tonos Humanos

In the second half of the seventh century, human tones were predominantly strophic songs in one voice with basso continuo accompaniment or exceptionally, with tablature for baroque guitar. In this stream converge a multitude of cultural events of the time, from various social universes. Despite its brevity, these songs are able to recreate, with an economy of surprising ways, each of the characters, plots, legends, tales, stories, properties and archetypical situations that proliferated in all genres and subgenres of poetry, novels, theater and even painting of this time. Los Tonos Humanos emerged in 2004 as an intimate musical concept: a group aimed at small spaces and intimate public, in order to interpret with replicas of instruments and historical criteria, musical repertoire from the Middle Ages to the Spanish Baroque and colonial era, and other European repertoires. Los Tonos Humanos is composed of musicians specializing in this repertoire who have performed at events throughout Mxico and other countries. This group comprises three great musicians from Puebla, Mexico: Elisa valos (soprano), Omar Ruiz Garca (Renaissance flutes), Manuel Meja (Lute and Renaissance guitarrilla)

Pathways to BachJ.S. Bach didnt just appear out of nowhere. Dieterich Buxtehude, the father of German musicians, greatly influenced Bach; and before that, Buxtehude was influenced by Heinrich Schtz, the trendsetter of a German musical tradition that would last for more than two hundred years. For its opening concert of the season, Texas Early Music Project performs some of the most technically and emotionally powerful music by Buxtehude and Schtz, featuring Schtzs Musikalische Exequien and Buxtehudes magnificent cantata, Herzlich lieb hab ich, for chorus, soloists, and orchestra.

Les gots-rnis, part deux - Les franais. Grace, elegance, and delicacy are just a few hallmarks of the music of the French Baroque. From the court of the Sun King to the salons of Paris, this highly ornamented music of French composers tickled the ears of courtiers and philosophers alike. We think youll agree that the unique French style has a certain on ne sait quoi that makes it unmistakably French, but despite this, French music exhibits a great deal of variety of styles and moods. Youll experience music enjoyed by Louis XIV in his private quarters, Parisian nobility in the opera theatres of Paris, and parishioners in the cathedrals and churches of Dijon and Paris. This concert will feature a number of ABO soloists, including Stephanie Raby (violin & viola da gamba), James Brown (viola da gamba), Eric Smith (viola da gamba & cello), Elizabeth Hardy (bassoon), Billy Traylor (oboe & recorder), Marcus McGuff (flute) and Joan Carlson (violin & soprano), and well welcome back soprano Julianna Emanski, who sang the title role in last seasons performance of Handels Esther. Featuring sacred and secular works by Marais, Lully, Charpentier, Boismortier, Rameau, and more.

The next stop on our Eurotour includes the stages and opera houses of 17th century London as we pay homage to Henry Purcell in a hilarious staged opera pastiche. The concert will be performed by a small period orchestra and six of TEMP's acclaimed soloists. The best opera tells a story that is, if not totallyor even the slightest bitbelievable, is one that we connect with through the characters and the music. With this in mind, we weave a plot around music from Purcell's The Fairy Queen, King Arthur, Dido & Aeneas, The Tempest, and some of his songs and dialogues. The concert also includes gems from his predecessors, Robert Johnson and Nicholas Lanier. New York's Peter Walker (baritone) and Ryland Angel (countertenor) join TEMP's Jenifer Thyssen & Meredith Ruduski (sopranos), tenor Jeffrey Jones-Ragona, and baritone Brett Barnes for this unique production. Violinists Stephanie Raby, Bruce Colson (Austin), violist Bruce Williams, Jane Leggiero (cello), Scott Horton (theorbo), and Austin Baroque Orchestra director Billy Traylor (harpsichord) comprise the period orchestra. As an early Valentine present, treat yourself and your sweetie(s) to the beauty of some of the most accessible opera in an intimate setting.

Handels operas were wildly popular in London. They were so popular that the immigrant Handel was soon the most famous musician in the English capital, and he had more than his share of friends, enemies, and frenemies. The English couldnt get enough of his musical dramas, complete with all of the extremes of human emotion, not to mention the plethora off-stage personal drama that permeated the lives of his divas. The industrious Saxon realized that Londoners might enjoy religious drama as much as they did operas about ancient heroes and gods. In 1732 he revised an earlier piece he had written, based on a libretto by Jean Racine and depicting the story of the Old Testament heroine Esther. His supporters found out, and begged him to reprise the work. There was one problem: the Bishop of London forbade any presentation of any Biblical story on stage. Handels solution was simple and brilliant: namely, to perform the work on stage as a concert, and not as a musical drama. It worked, and in the process he created a genre with which his name has been inexorably linked the English oratorio. We hope youll join us for our fourth season grand finale, Handels masterful Esther. Calling for a large, colorful orchestra that includes a full compliment of woodwinds, brass, strings and even harp, a full chorus, and soloists, youll experience some of Handels most powerful choral writing, as well as some of his most beautiful writing for solo voice. Come and learn how Esther, a Jewish orphan, becomes Queen of Persia and through cleverness, bravery, and more than just a little bit of her feminine charms, saves her people from a bloody fate. The best part? Its sung in English, so youll know exactly what theyre saying!

La Follia Austin Baroque

J.S. Bach's "The Art of Fugue" In the last decade of his life, Bach undertook the composition of 18 studies based on a single theme, which he collectively titled Die Kunst der Fuge, or The Art of Fugue. Fourteen of these studies are so-called fugues, a compositional form employing imitative entrances of the theme under strict rules. Bach was (and still is) the undisputed master of fugal composition. However, the permutations of this theme that Bach conceived stretched even his mighty powers to the limit. The theme is turned upside down. It is played at the same time as the main theme. It is played with shorter and longer note durations simultaneously, and much more. The final fugue (apparently left unfinished at his death) combines three other themes with the main theme, one of those themes being a spelling of his name. Several composers have humbly attempted completions of this fugue, and La Follia will perform one of the most famous.

The Full Monteverdi, Part 2 We end our love song to Italy with music by Monteverdi and by composers who were influenced by him and some who might even have influenced the master a bit! There are few composers whose careers have spanned two musical eras, and even fewer who have excelled majestically in both eras. More than 50 years separated Claudio Monteverdi's first book of madrigals (1587) from his final large sacred and secular works in 1642, a time period that witnessed the transition of the musical Renaissance into the Baroque. We take a cue from the comedic movie The Full Monty to expose Monteverdi's artistic brilliance in his second career, that of the Baroque composer. Singers include Jenifer Thyssen, Gitanjali Mathur, Meredith Ruduski, Cayla Cardiff, Jenny Houghton, Stephanie Prewitt, Jeffrey Jones Ragona, David Lopez, Paul DArcy, Brett Barnes, Steve Olivares, Thann Scoggin, and guest mezzo-soprano Erin Calata, from Seattle. Guest violinists Anna Griffis (Boston) and Boel Gidholm (Rochester) lead our chamber orchestra of cellos (Jane Leggiero & John Walters), theorbo & Baroque guitar (Scott Horton), triple harp (Elaine Barber), and harpsichord (Billy Traylor).

By the eighteenth century, the term cantata generally referred to one or two specific musical genres, but before the word cantata had these distinct meanings, it simply referred to any piece meant to be sung, usually with instrumental accompaniment. In the spirit of that earlier and broader definition that we present a selection of Baroque works for choir and orchestra, including J.S. Bachs cantata *Jesu, der du meine Seele*, Charpentiers sumptuous and martial *Te Deum*, Jersalems ode *Al combate* (receiving its Texas and period-instrument premiere), and *Ad pedes* from Buxtehude's moving *Membra Jesu nostri*. Though they're not all cantatas in the strictest sense, we'll show you that a "cantata" by any other name sounds just as sweet.

Celebrate July 4 with La Follia as they present the amazing music composed and performed by the Moravians in post-Revolutionary America. It will be an extravaganza with chorus, strings, woodwinds, organ, and trombone choir. Featured is a performance of the first musical commemoration of July 4 in 1783, the Psalm of Joy. At the time of the American War of Independence, the most sophisticated music making in America, by European standards, was unquestionably in the Moravian enclaves in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and Salem, North Carolina. If you like Haydn and other music of the Early Classical period, this music is your cup of tea! The first part of the concert features an excellent string trio by American-born John Antes, solo songs with strings by three Moravian-American composers, and hymns performed by a trombone choir (a unique Moravian tradition) under the direction of Dr. Nathaniel Brickens. Concluding the concert is a performance of the first musical commemoration of July 4, the Psalm of Joy, a cantata with choir, strings, woodwinds, organ, and the trombone choir. It was first performed by the Moravians in Salem, North Carolina in 1783 and open to all visitors. There was even food and an evening parade (but no fireworks)! La Follias first concert exploring American music from the time of the Revolution won an Austin Chronicle award for one of the top 10 Classical Music treasures in 2012. This concert promises to be just as treasured. Come hear the music that astonished Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and George Washington.

A program of stirring, dramatic music in anticipation of Holy Week, including Georg Bhm's rarely performed Passion According to St. John, once attributed to Handel. Like J.S. Bach's St. John Passion, Bhm's work musically depicts the Good Friday story as it is written in the Gospel of John. Also on the program are a chorus form Handel's final oratorio "Jephtha," excerpts from J.S. Bach's contemplative funeral cantata "Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit" and Haydn's fiery Symphony no. 49 in F minor, "La passione" - possibly the first performance of a complete Haydn symphony on period instruments in Central Texas.

Canzona, with Christina Edelen

Henry VIII, best known today as a fat despot with an unfortunate marital history, was as a young man educated to be the Ideal Renaissance Prince, capable of speaking several languages and playing many musical instruments, especially the recorders and the virginal. His daughter Elizabeth was also well trained in music and played the virginal with great ability. This program will be an hour exploring music from the courts of Henry VIII and Elizabeth. The ensemble Canzonawhich performs on copies of Renaissance-style recorderswill be joined by harpsichordist Christina Edelen from Amsterdam, playing on a reproduction Renaissance virginal. Gerald Self narrates the concert, telling stories about life in the English court and explaining the music and the instruments used.
