Ester, Liberatrice del Popolo Ebreo

Alessandro Stradella

Ester: Jessica Gould; Speranza Celeste: Sarah Pillow; Mardocheo: José Lemos; Aman: Ian Pomerantz; Assuero: Jonathan Woody; Testo: Dominic Inferrera; Due Ebree: Martha Sullivan & Amanda Sidebottom

Grant Herreid and Daniel Swenberg, lutes; Loren Ludwig, viola da gamba; Elliot Figg, harpsichord

Known as the "Caravaggio of Music", the violent, volatile, and startlingly inventive Alessandro Stradella can be considered a bridge between Carissimi and Handel. His innumerable works, both sacred and secular, still await a broader hearing in our time.

The historic Brotherhood Synagogue, once a stop on the Underground Railroad, sets the stage for this work dedicated to the Hebrew Queen who saved her people, in the first New York performance of the work in over 30 years.

A hard copy English translation will be provided at the concert.
