TENET PRESENTS “THE SECRET LOVER”
PAYS TRIBUTE TO CONCERTO DELLE DONNE OF 17TH CENTURY ITALY
New York’s leading early music ensemble TENET brings its acclaimed 2014-15 concert series to a close with The Secret Lover, a program that celebrates music by, for, and about women and pays tribute to the 17th century Concerto delle donne, the trio of extraordinarily gifted professional female singers who were renowned for their performances in the courts of the late Italian Renaissance. Three of TENET’s own leading ladies – sopranos Jolle Greenleaf and Molly Quinn, and mezzo-soprano Virginia Warnken – present The Secret Lover, the translation of composer Barbara Strozzi’s cantata L’amante segreto, on Saturday, April 18 at the Fabbri Mansion at the House of the Redeemer on New York City’s Upper East Side. There will be two performances, one in the afternoon and one in the evening.
