Steffani: Duets of Love and Passion
BEMF’s GRAMMY-winning Artistic Directors Paul O’Dette and Stephen Stubbs lead the BEMF Chamber Ensemble and a stunning group of vocalists in a program that continues BEMF’s acclaimed exploration of the music of Agostino Steffani. Enjoy rare performances of this great composer’s enchanting vocal duets and see why he was such an essential inspiration in the musical development of the young Handel and has become a hallmark of our organization.

This six-city North American tour coincides with the release of BEMF’s recording on the CPO label of this repertoire with the same singers.

"Playing of sensational quality, personality, and versatility."
—Gramophone
