'il Mantovano Hebreo': Music by Salomone Rossi
The winners of last year's York Early Music International Young Artists Competition celebrate the many-faceted art of the Italian-Jewish composer Salomone Rossi, a court musician in the service of the Gonzaga family at the time of Monteverdi. Rossi was one of the first masters of the trio sonata, his beautiful and refined madrigals create a bridge between the 16th-century polyphonic madrigal and the new musical style of the early 17th-century, and with his polyphonic settings of Hebrew prayers and psalms he brought both modernity and elegant simplicity to the music of the synagogue.
Seating is reserved.
