Description:

After bursting onto the scene at (Le) Poisson Rouge in August with a preview of its technically and musically uncompromising standards, the newest period-instrument orchestra in New York City, New York Baroque Incorporated, fires up the second concert of its inaugural season at the Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew, on December 9, at 7:00 p.m. presented by the Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew & Gallim Dance as part of their series, Second Sundays. Entitled The Big Bang, the program is a creation story in music. Opening with the extraordinary depiction of chaos from Jean-Féry Rébel’s Les élémens, the audience is taken to the very beginnings of the universe. From there, the evening proceeds through depictions of the aquatic world, animals, storms, and finally human love, in the music of Telemann (Wassermusik), Handel (Overture from Amadigi di Gaula. Storm from Riccardo primo, re d'Inghilterra), Farina (Capriccio Stravagante), and Rameau (Entrée d' Abaris from Les Boréades).

Together with the Church of St. Luke & St. Matthew, Gallim Dance presents Second Sundays, a year-long performance series that brings dancers, musicians, writers, filmmakers, and creative thinkers of all kinds together for intimate, hour-long programs on the second Sunday of each month.

About the Ensemble:

New York Baroque Incorporated (NYBI) is a conductor-less orchestra of young players of Baroque instruments in New York City, striving to bring the city vital, informed, and fresh performances of 17th and 18th century repertoire, and to build a vibrant landscape for collaborations between early music and other art forms. Founded in 2012 by alumni and graduate students from Juilliard’s Historical Performance Program, it is self-managed and self-governing. The inaugural season of NYBI, 2012-13, will also include a collaboration with world-renowned Baroque violinist Monica Huggett in March.

The players of NYBI include winners of the Early Music America/Naxos Recording Competition, Audience Award winners of EMA Baroque Performance Competition, finalists of the York Early Music Competition, and recipients of the Jacob K. Javits and Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships. Members have recorded for Naxos, Sony and Decca, and have appeared at festivals from Aspen to Marlboro to Saito Kinen. Current and former teaching positions held by NYBI musicians include Temple University, Connecticut College, Lucy Moses School, Shepherd School Preparatory Program, Stony Brook University, and Concervatorio V. Bellini of Palermo.
