Concert: “Napoleon's Castrato: Girolamo Crescentini (1762-1846)”

Starts:
8:00 pm on Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Location:
Marshall Room, 2nd Floor, 855 Commonwealth Avenue
Please join us on January 30th for a concert featuring soprano Robert Crowe (Romeo), mezzo soprano Mary Gerbi (Giulietta), Professor Peter Sykes, fortepiano and Professor Victor Coelho, guitar. We are marking the 250th year of the birth of the Chevalier Girolamo Crescentini. Crescentini was a famous singer, teacher and composer. This concert will feature his songs for fortepiano and for classical guitar, a solo cantata similar in quality to middle period Beethoven, though with an Italianate cast, and selections from Zingarelli's Giullietta e Romeo, with mezzo-soprano Mary Gerbi singing the role of Giulietta, from a circa 1820 collection of arias and duets arranged for fortepiano.
