Barbara Strozzi and Her World

Brooklyn Baroque

Barbara Strozzi was a remarkable and prolific composer in 17th Century Venice, whose songs are poetically and harmonically daring. The program will include the hypnotic "L'amante segreto" and the powerful "Lagrime mie", as well as duets, a cello sonata by her Bolognese contemporary Domenico Gabrielli, and a harpsichord piece by the Venetian keyboardist and lutenist Giovanni Picchi.

Brooklyn Baroque debuted in the fall of 2000, when cellist David Bakamjian joined the long-standing duo of Baroque flutist Andrew Bolotowsky and harpsichordist Rebecca Pechefsky. The trio performed frequently in the New York area and was invited to perform in other states across the country. Today core members Pechefsky and Bakamjian collaborate with the finest early-music specialists in the New York area. For this concert they will be joined by two of New York City's most distinguished sopranos: Marguerite Krull and Linda Lee Jones. www.brooklynbaroque.com
