St. Paul's Chapel, Columbia University
1160 Amsterdam Avenue at 116th Street
The ghetto walls that separated Christian from Jew in Counter-Reformation Italy were more porous than impenetrable, allowing for a rich musical dialogue and vibrant exchange of ideas throughout the baroque era. Posing the question of who influenced whom, this concert explores the cross-fertilization of Jewish and Catholic musical cultures in the music of Salomone Rossi, Benedetto Marcello, Francesco Durante, Barbara Strozzi, Claudio Monteverdi, and Georg Friederich Handel.
Jessica Gould, soprano & Noa Frenkel, contralto
Pedro d'Aquino, harpsichord and organ
