Flutist Joseph Monticello’s playing has been praised by both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal as “graceful" and for being as “exciting as the singers.” Equally at home on both modern and historical flutes, Joseph spends most of his year as second flutist of the Florida Grand Opera and Palm Beach Symphony orchestras, making his home in Miami. Joseph remains active in the historical performance world, performing with Philharmonia Baroque, Boston Baroque, New York Baroque Incorporated, and as the principal flute of the newly formed Teatro Nuovo festival orchestra, specializing in the historically informed presentation of Bel Canto operatic masterworks on period-appropriate instruments. Having received his Masters in Historical Performance from The Juilliard School, Joseph has performed and toured worldwide with many of the leading conductors and ensembles of the early music movement, including: Nicholas McGegan, Masaaki Suzuki, Jordi Savall, Harry Bickett, Richard Egarr, and William Christie, having twice participated in the Les Arts Florissants summer festival “Dans les Jardins de William Christie” in Thire, France. Prior to his studies at Juilliard, Joseph received his Bachelor of Music from Oberlin Conservatory under Michel Debost and later, Alexa Still. It was there he first took up the baroque flute under Kathie Stewart, before continuing his studies with Sandra Miller at Juilliard.

New Vintage Baroque
with special guest from Broadwood Juntion
Francis Liu, violin
Sarah Stone, violoncello
Patrick Jones, square piano
Broadwood Junction was formed after the chance discovery of an 1810 Broadwood square piano at an estate sale in Virginia. The must-have instrument of the late 18th century, square pianos paved the way for the middle class to make music at home, finding their way into the parlors of Jane Austen, Thomas Jefferson, Marie Antoinette, and Johann Christian Bach.
Broadwood Junction is dedicated to bringing the unique stories and timbres of our square piano to the public. Made up of alumni from Juilliard's Historical Performance program, the trio is passionate about exploring, experimenting, and performing repertoire from the early Classical to the Romantic era.

”Wolf-in-Skins” is an evening-length “dance-opera” choreographed and directed by Christopher Williams and composed by Gregory Spears. Kings, foundlings, wolves, hounds, fay milkmaids and other mythical characters fill this dance opera that draws inspiration from a cycle of Welsh romance tales that preserve pre-Celtic and pre-Christian elements. It views marginalized or outmoded cultural relics, celebrating the “otherness” inherent in early Welsh literature, through a contemporary lens.
Driven by choreographed operatic sequences supported by supertitles, the work combines live music, dance, puppetry, and visual design to re-imagine lost mythology as a staged ritual. Singers performing in a quasi-archaic English represent the libretto’s human characters, whereas dancers embody its supernatural characters. A choir of shadow figures singing in Welsh represents the voices of the supernatural characters. The complete work strives to dovetail the traditional live performance genres of opera, dance, theater, and puppetry into a visual, sonorous, and spatial "polyphony" that forges new territory as its own performance hybrid carrying forward the tradition of Wagnerian “Gesamtkunstwerk” and Diaghilev’s “Ballets Russes.”
Wolf-in-Skins is currently in development in American Opera Projects’ “First Chance” and “Dance Opera Initiative” programs, supported by funding through the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and in partnership with Philadelphia Dance Projects, supported in part by The National Endowment for the Arts, the William Penn Foundation and the Philadelphia Cultural Fund.
Additional development of Wolf-in-Skins has been supported in part by funds from the 92nd Street Y New Works in Dance Fund, the Greenwall Foundation, and the O’Donnell-Green Music & Dance Foundation and provided through residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, One Arm Red, Dance New Amsterdam, the Joyce SoHo as part of a Rockefeller Dance-Theater Planning Residency, and at Watermill - a laboratory for performance.

New Vintage Baroque (NVB) and Oracle Hysterical (OH) round out their 2016-17 series at National Sawdust with a very special closing show. New Vintage and Oracle present 6 previously unreleased songs from their album, "Passionate Pilgrim" (VIA Records). The set includes 4 original songs by composer Majel Connery (deemed “thoroughly Schubertian” by Allan Kozinn, Wall Street Journal) that set the course for the album more than a decade later. The June 3rd show also marks the release of the Passionate Pilgrim Deluxe Album on VIA Records. In addition to this special offering, other music on the program ranges from freshly-minted re-orchestrations by Timo Andres of Benjamin Britten’s Folksong Arrangements for baroque band (featuring tenor Owen McIntosh) and Elliot Cole's striking living-room opera, Babinagar, based on a folktale from Afghanistan.
New Vintage Baroque presents Apocrypha
What happens when fate separates a work from its creator? What meaning is gained or lost from a piece devoid of a clear history? In chis concert, members of New Vintage Baroque wade into the ambiguous territory of anonymous, misattributed, and spurious works. Accompanying them on this journey will be the composing-singing-bards of Oracle Hysterical, writing companion pieces to the Passionate Pilgrim, an anonymous anthology of 20 poems once attributed to one 'W. Shakespeare." Featuring new works by Brad Balliett, Doug Balliett, Elliot Cole, and Majel Connery.
Venues: The Whitebox Gallery and The Danner Loft New York, NY
Concert Dates: 8, 9 May 2015
