Show Description

Presented by Ars Lyrica Houston

Handel’s Silete venti, the major work on this program, is a spectacular solo motet for soprano and Baroque orchestra, one that rivals his best operatic scenes. It places a deeply religious soul within a naturalistic context, where rustling leaves and blooming flowers prompt a lush meditation on love and happiness. Ecstatic Visions spotlights members of the ensemble as well, in rapturous instrumental music by Ciprano da Rore, Johann Schmeltzer, and Jean-Philippe Rameau.

Grammy-nominated ensemble Ars Lyrica Houston specializes in music from the Baroque era, transporting listeners back in time to the “golden age” of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. With a season featuring both masterworks and hidden gems, Ars Lyrica’s programs are performed on period instruments with careful attention to historical style and context.
