Women & Power
Black Tulip presents ‘Women & Power’ November 25th 2019 on Live from WFMT at WFMT’s Levin Performance Studio at the Renée Crown Public Media Center. ‘Women & Power’ is a new program focusing on heroines of the ancient world, both mythological and semi-historical. You’ll hear Alessandro Scarlatti’s “Lucretia Romana,” the intense cantata depicting a Roman noblewoman whose rape and subsequent suicide led to tyranny’s overthrow; “Judith,” Sebastian Brossard’s cantata about the biblical heroine; and a portrait of the Greek Poetess Sappho by English composer John Blow. Add in dazzling instrumental music by Dietrich Buxtehude, Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Charles Mouton, and others, and you have an epic program. Black Tulip is a multinational ensemble featuring Josefien Stoppelenburg, soprano (the Netherlands), Mirja Lorenz, recorders (Germany), Phillip W. Serna, violas da gamba (US), and Joel Spears, lute and theorbo (US).
