Baritone Vincent Ranallo is renowned for his expressive and expansive performances. Here, he presents
a recital of French cantatas from the first half of the 17th century that set to music the furioso adventures of gods, goddesses, and heroes of mythology. Passion and excess in the intimate surroundings of an aristocratic salon await you.
Hour-long concert with commentary, no intermission.

For its season closing, I Musici brings you on a journey covering a wide palette of emotions. The exceptional cellist and musical pioneer Matt Haimovitz revisits Schubert’s famous Arpeggione Sonata, followed by a performance of From Jewish Life, a musical exploration of the Jewish spirit. A traveller’s sightings and impressions are then portrayed in Viatore for string orchestra. And, to conclude a vibrant season, I Musici’s fearless musicians take on Beethoven’s monumental Grosse Fuge orchestrated by Jean-Marie Zeitouni.
