"THE SECRET LOVER: Women in 17th-century Italy"
Presented with the generous support of the Tucson Desert Song Festival
Featuring music by and for Italy’s first professional women composers and performers, Jolle Greenleaf, Molly Quinn, and Virginia Kelsey Warnken and their instrumental counterparts bring to life the history of this repertoire.
At a time when women were subservient and little accepted as composers and performers, they were writing and singing unforgettably sensuous and expressive music. The concerto delle donne, an all-female ensemble established by the Duke of Ferrara to perform in secret to a select circle of nobles, excelled at the late Renaissance ideal of sprezzatura—the artful performance of highly difficult music with apparent ease. Their gifts inspired composers to write extraordinarily florid and virtuosic music for them. Among the most important women composers of the time were Barbara Strozzi, Francesca Caccini, Antonia Bembo, Isabella Leonarda, and Chiara Margarita Cozzolani. Whether composing and performing for court or convent, they enriched the musical life of their time and of ours.
Tickets for Individuals ($15) and for a Household ($25) are available on the AEMS website.
