Celebrating Drawing in Tintoretto’s Venice and Venetian Prints in the Time of Tintoretto

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of Tintoretto's birth, Parthenia and guest vocalist Ryland Angel offer sublime works for voice and viols by Italian Renaissance masters from the age of the sonnet. Composers include Luca Marenzio, Philippe Verdelot, Jacques Arcadelt, Cipriano de Rore, Girolamo Frescobaldi, and Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli—uncle and nephew whose composing skills were honed in Venice and defined the era’s style. The program also features Martin Kennedy’s song cycle, Tomb Sonnets (2014), for viol consort and countertenor, which explores poetic studies of death and burial in sonnets by Petrarch, Keats, and Longfellow.
