Sospiri di Merula

Our shared passion for music makes it very exciting to announce the beginning of a new Sospiri season! The 2021-22 series begins with Sospiri di Merula on Sunday, Nov. 14th at 4pm, live in the sanctuary of Olivet Congregational Church, 1850 Iglehart, St. Paul.

This concert presents a variety of works by Tarquinio Merula, a revolutionary but lesser-known composer of the early Italian Baroque period. Merula lived an intense life filled with intrigue, scandal, and tragedy, and his works reflect the complex and provocative nature of his character.

With a wide range of vocal and instrumental chamber music, our program reveals a master of invention and a composer who helped to push musical frontiers in significant directions. And did we mention there will be ciacconas? Oh yes . . . .

Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door, and are $20 or pay-as-able.
