Breathtaking: A Cornetto and a Voice Entwined
Perhaps no instrument has been more heralded over the centuries for replicating the luminous beauty of the human voice than the cornetto. Enjoy a “breathtaking” program of musical conversation between cornetto and voice featuring the world’s most renowned cornetto virtuoso Bruce Dickey and exquisite soprano Hana Blažíková. Joined by a star-studded ensemble featuring BEMF Artistic Co-Director Stephen Stubbs and acclaimed violinist Monica Huggett, these exceptional performers present stunning masterpieces by Scarlatti, Merula, Carissimi, and more.

Pre-Concert Talk at 7pm.

“Plangent eloquence and dare-devil bravura.”
