The Craftman's Hammer

The Craftsman's’ Hammer

New Vintage Baroque seeks to engage in a musical dialogue around questions of work, community, and identity. How does what we do "for a living" define us and the communities we live in and engage with? The program includes 18th century folk music as defined by Telemann and Corrette, three world premieres commissioned by NVB, and Louis Andriessen's jagged and unrelenting Workers Union.

Concert Dates: 26, 27 September 2015

Venues: Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, New York NY.

Repertoire:

Jonathan Dawe The Hammer and the Hammerer (2015)

Louis Andriessen Workers Union (1975)

Joseph Rubinstein A Clear View (2015)

George Telemann Völker-Ouvertüre TWV 55:B5

Dorian Wallace The Fifth of November (2015)

The Body Untied

New Vintage Baroque ushers in the new year with The Body Untied. This program features a new commission by Simon Frisch, a song cycle exploring the legacy of historic French queen (twice over) Anne of Brittany (1477 - 1514). As the last duchess of an independent Brittany, and a ferocious diplomat and patron of the arts, she surpassed her circumstances to live a life of enormous consequence for Europe. The cycle traces the arc of Anne's coercion into the French crown and legendary forty-day funeral, and ruminates on her embodiment, even centuries later, of the resilient spirit of the Breton. The texts, infused with chilling winds, sea salt, flora, violence, and mourning, are drawn from her court, funeral rites, and contemporary Anglo-Breton poet Claire Trévien. Interspersed are dances and Baroque court music of Couperin and Lully, guided with narration of Anne's life and influence.
