Claudio Monteverdi—Songs of Love and War
Atlanta Baroque Orchestra
Julie Andrijeski, artistic director & concertmaster
with Jesse Blumberg, bass baritone; Karin Weston, soprano; and Nathan Dougherty, tenor

Presented by the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra and Friends of Cathedral Music

Lovers of opera, here’s your chance to see and hear how it all began!

There are times in history when the creation of music takes a sharp right turn, and the dawning of the 17th century is such a time. The rise of individualism prompted composers like Monteverdi to write in a new, more personal style that opened the doors to opera. At the heart of Monteverdi’s seminal collection “Songs of Love and War” lies the tragic tale of Tancredi and Clorinda, lovers who find themselves fighting unwittingly on opposite sides. World-renowned bass-baritone Jesse Blumberg will dramatically guide us through the story vibrantly enacted by our talented singer/actors Karen Weston and Nathan Dougherty.

with Jaap ter Linden, guest director

Presented by the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra and Friends of Cathedral Music

This concert comes to you in titanic proportions, with famous composers, directors, and soloists all in one!

Although J.S. Bach and W.A. Mozart were not innovators of a new style, they both brought established styles to perfection and rightly remain among the most famous composers to this day. World-renowned Dutch cellist and conductor Jaap ter Linden joins us as guest director for this blockbuster program that features Bach’s virtuosic Fifth Brandenburg Concerto contrasted with his dark and soulful Violin Concerto in A minor, and Mozart’s famously effervescent Eine kleine Nachtmusik featuring a star-studded line-up of soloists: Julie Andrijeski, Evan Few, Adam Jaffe, and Janice Joyce Robinson.

Cathedral Schola
Dale Adelmann, conductor
Nathan Medley, countertenor

Presented by the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, Friends of Cathedral Music, and the Moore-Wilkerson Fund of the Cathedral of St Philip

Lovers of Vivaldi, now is your chance to hear two of his most beloved works and be introduced to what will soon become new favorites!

Antonio Vivaldi’s influence on the 18th-century baroque world cannot be overestimated. His virtuosic, driving style mixed with poignant lyricism captured the hearts and minds of many a composer. Like Monteverdi, Vivaldi was an opera lover and created musical stories with and without vocalists, whether it be the dashing Winter Concerto or the jubilant Gloria. Joining us for this program are our beloved choral collaborators, the Cathedral of St Philip Schola, directed by Dale Adelmann; and Nathan Medley, one of America’s great countertenors who recently moved to Atlanta. Together, we will lead you on our musical journeys through two grippingly reverent sacred works evoking the Lenten season before catching a glimpse, through Vivaldi’s famous Gloria, of the joyous season to come.

More information about the program, Advance tickets and Patron tickets will be available online at www.cathedralATL.org/concerts and from the Cathedral Book Store at (404) 237-7582.
