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 The Grimm’s Fairy Tales @ National Sawdust
New Vintage Baroque and Oracle Hysterical join forces to premierea full length song cycle of the Grimm Brothers for Baroque chamber ensemble and vocalists. These Grimm’s stories live in the world of oral folk tales -- which are variously funny, poignant, and macabre. The appeal of these folk tales connects the 21st century to archetypal dream-memory, where the essential questions of family, adventure, justice, and transformation work out over countless generations.
Venue: National Sawdust 80 N6th Street, Brooklyn NY.
