A Christianized adaptation of the story of Buddha from medieval Greece, Russia, Croatia, and Italy

Sunday, February 19, 2:30 PM
Tuesday, February 21, 7:30 PM
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary

What if one of the most popular saints in medieval Christianity was none other than Buddha? Dialogos presents a musical journey inspired by the legend of Barlaam and Josaphat (a Christianized adaptation of the story of Buddha). Three musicians tell the story using musical repertoires from Medieval Greek, Latin, Russian, Croatian, French, and Italian manuscripts. The popularity and cosmopolitan nature of this legend, as well as its universal dimension, inspired the creation of this program.

Concerto Köln with Jeanine De Bique

Mirrors

Heroines of antiquity reflected in Baroque opera music by George Friderich Handel and contemporaries

Sunday, March 26, 4:00 PM
Carnegie Music Hall, Oakland

Sensational Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique and world-renowned German Baroque orchestra Concerto Köln take the stage at the beautiful Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland for a program featuring music from De Bique’s acclaimed debut album Mirrors.

Mirrors is centered around George Friderich Handel’s arias for heroines of antiquity such as Cleopatra, Rodelinda, and Alcina, paired with arias for those same heroines written by Handel’s contemporaries (Carl Heinrich Graun, Riccardo Broschi, and Georg Philipp Telemann). Through these varied musical characterizations of the same ancient subjects, De Bique and Concerto Köln demonstrate the complex relationship between text, music, and the meaning they imbue.

Concerto Köln
8 violins, 3 violas, 2 cellos, double bass, lute, harpsichord
