Ars Musica Chicago presents "Sweeter Than Roses"

Friday, September 28, 2018 - 7:30pm

Take a musical journey through time with Ars Musica Chicago as we explore the art song from the early Baroque through late Classical eras. Experience the unparalleled beauty and unbridled emotion of vocal gems by Jacopo Peri, Claudio Monteverdi, Barbara Strozzi, Henry Purcell, Joseph Haydn, and W.A. Mozart. Instrumental works for solo theorbo, harpsichord, and fortepiano by Girolamo Kapsberger, Alessandro Piccinini, Hernando de Cabezón, Purcell, and Mozart round out the program.

Rising-star American soprano Hannah De Priest will be joined by Michael Pecak on fortepiano; Ars Musica Chicago’s Artistic Director, Jason J. Moy, on harpsichord; and special guest Deborah Fox of Pegasus Early Music (Rochester, NY) on theorbo and baroque guitar.
