Season 2015-16: THE SOUL OF NAPLES The Toronto Consort joins forces with Vesuvius Ensemble

Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir

The soul of Naples has always been expressed in its passionate, vivacious music, and Renaissance Naples is no exception. Comic street songs, erotic love poetry, wild tarantellas, virtuoso fantasias, all of these come alive when the Toronto Consort joins forces with Vesuvius Ensemble in a magnificent evening of music from 16th-century Naples. Vesuvius Ensemble is one of the world’s foremost groups specializing in early Neapolitan music, led by singer extraordinaire Francesco Pellegrino.

The Toronto Consort with Vesuvius Ensemble:
Guest Director: Francesco Pellegrino
Gianluca Campanino: Chitarra Battente, Colascione
Romina Di Gasbarro: Baroque Guitar, Voice
Lucas Harris: Theorbo, Baroque Guitar, Lute
Marco Cera: Baroque Guitar, Chitarra Battente, Ciaramella

Generously supported by Ann H. Atkinson.
