With a program that highlights the music that John Jay may have heard performed during his mission as minister to Spain (1779-82), "Concitato" and the artists of Juilliard's historical instruments program will electrify listeners with their insightful interpretations of rarely heard baroque masterpieces on period instruments.
Come hear Joan Plana (violin), Jeffrey Grossman (harpsichord), Nat Helgeson (dulcian), Priscilla Smith (oboe, bagpipes and vocals) and Grant Herreid (guitar, vocals and drums) present exquisite arrangements and and then discuss their craft with the audience in an intimate salon setting.
Taking its name from the Italian "concitare" (to incite or provoke), Concitato combines the latest discoveries in musicological research with cutting edge training. "...technically adept and expressive performances...gracefully wrought renditions of work." (The New York Times)
