A Bach New Year's Eve

Amor Artis continues its decades-long tradition of heralding the New Year with exalted music by one of our greatest composers. Led by violinist Daniel Lee, praised by the New York Times for his “ravishing vehemence" and “fleet-fingered, passionate … soulful performance," the instrumental ensemble includes early music luminaries Priscilla Herreid on baroque oboe and recorder and John Thiessen on baroque trumpet (hailed by the New York Times as “the gold standard of Baroque trumpet playing in this country"). You will enjoy some of Bach’s most spirited music, including the dazzling motet, “Singet dem Herrn," the New Year’s cantata by the same name, the lively Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, and the exquisite “Dona Nobis Pacem" from the B Minor Mass.

Piffaro

01.21.18 |3:30PM

DC US

Piffaro, the Renaissance Band, delights audiences with highly polished recreations of the rustic music of the peasantry and the elegant sounds of the official wind bands of the late medieval and Renaissance periods. Its ever-expanding instrumentarium includes shawms, dulcians, sackbuts, recorders, krumhorns, bagpipes, lutes, guitars, harps, and a variety of percussion—all careful reconstructions of instruments from the period. On the final day of the exhibition Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry, Piffaro will respond to the various scenes of music-makers and images of musical instruments represented in the show, performing music Vermeer and his rivals may have been listening to as they painted.
