Ester Liberatrice del Popolo Ebreo by Alessandro Stradella
Brotherhood Synagogue, 28 Gramercy Park South, NY, NY 10003
Known as the “Caravaggio of Music”, the violent and volatile Alessandro Stradella can be considered a bridge between Carissimi and Handel. His innumerable works, both sacred and secular, still await a broader hearing in our time.
The historic Brotherhood Synagogue, once a stop on the Underground Railroad sets the stage for this work dedicated to the Hebrew Queen who saved her people, in the first New York performance in over 30 years.
