A few early music links of note.

  • Listen to a concert given by Concerto Soave entitled Concerto delle Dame, (mostly) vocal music by 17th-century Italian composers (courtesy of Radio France).
  • The Library of Congress is set to open an exhibit, As the Old Sing, So the Young Twitter, which “takes its inspiration from the musical and verbal relationship between birds and flutes.” It runs from May 6th through October 30th.
  • Learn about violinist Daniel Hope and The Bow Project, an in-depth look at the origins of the violin.
  • A great tenor (Rolando Villazon), a great composer (G.F. Handel), a great orchestra (Gabrieli Consort and Players), a great concert hall (Royal Festival Hall), and a not-so-great review.
