Amocanti Presents @ CARNEGIE HALL
Amocanti Director, DavidMichael Schuster and renowned guitarist, Peter Fletcher present works by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco (NY Premiere), Clarice Assad (World Premiere), Schubert, Mompou, Praetorius and Ponce.
Tedesco's The Divan of Moses-ibn-Ezra, a little-known masterpiece for one of the most illustrious composers of his day, is a song cycle which tells of the exile of a 12th century rabbi and philosopher in Spain through his search for God, and the meaning of life and love and death.
Music for a While
In its debut concert on November 11, 2007, Amocanti presented art songs interspersed with arias from various operas and oratorios. Composers included: Dowland, Purcell, Gluck, Handel, Head, Schubert, Schumann, Strauss, Quilter, Verdi, Puccini and Britten.
Getting a Handel on Verdi
Amocanti artists presented works by Verdi against a backdrop of carefully chosen Handel songs and arias, drawing from opera, oratorio and concert repertoire. We hope this will be the first of many "getting a hand[le] on ________" concerts.
