The Secret Lover

March 11, 2018

Festival Casals
San Juan, Puerto Rico

At a time when women were forced into subservient roles, unforgettably sensuous and expressive music was written by 17th-century singer-composer Barbara Strozzi and her contemporaries. Her cantatas and stunning trio for women’s voices showcase her genius for setting text and her boundless melodic invention. The “florid, poised performers” (The New York Times) of TENET will perform solos, duos and trios, as well as songs and instrumental music by other great composers working in Venice.
