Time: 8 pm

Plan on hearing a wide variety of music from across the centuries--including Perotin (c1160-1230), Magister Piero (c1300-1350), Mattheus Pipelare (c1450-1515), Jacobo Peri (1561-1633), Henry Purcell (1659-1695), Johannes Petz (1664-1716), Giovanni Pergolesi (1710-1736), Marie Therese Paradis (1759-1824) and others. As with all Collectio concerts, most of the pieces are American premieres, and all are very rarely performed (if ever) anywhere. The connection between the wide range of pieces will become apparent as the program unfolds.
