Frans Brueggen Remembered

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014


Frans Brueggen directed The Boston Camerata in the late 1970’s, in one of his first ventures as conductor. He also collaborated as narrator during the first production of “A Renaissance Christmas.” We remember him as a superb musician, and a supremely intelligent and inquisitive human being.

…to see Camerata in the movies :-) And to have the film win one of the three major festival awards. We had a great time at our annual after party, where we announced the 2014 winners! Thanks to Tasty Burger Harvard Square for sponsoring the event.

Early Music America Interview with Anne

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Early Music America has a wonderful interview with Anne Azéma, covering recent concerts and upcoming tours. You’ll also read about the upcoming residency in Reims, France, where Camerata has been invited to help celebrate the 800th anniversary of that city’s magnificent cathedral.

“A SEXY CONCERT”

Monday, November 15th, 2010

Anne Azéma leads the combined forces of both ensembles

That’s how one Facebooker described his Halloween afternoon experience with the Boston Camerata with the Harvard Choral Fellows. Now we are pretty sure that, despite the many fine musical and other events that have taken place at Harvard’s Memorial Church, the S word has rarely been applied to any of them.

But that’s what happens when Camerata’s soloists sing passionate Monteverdi madrigals there, and when the Harvard choir chimes in on Gastoldi and Vecchi dance songs….sensual pleasure was in the air. Anne and all of us were delighted with the wonderful teamwork for Vieni Imeneo: Music and Marriage in Renaissance Italy, gratified by the enthusiastic audience response, and very pleased by the Boston Musical Intelligencer’s happy review. “Not a dull moment,” wrote the reviewer, and we agree.
 
To conclude with just a little more post-concert Facebook chatter:

  • “S**** has early music stuck in her head. Fa la la la.”
  • “I CAN’T MAKE IT GO AWAY”
  • “SCARAMELLA ZOMBERO BEROMBEROMBEROMBO”
  • “Fa ra ra ra raaaa ra ra ra ra.”
  • “Don’t worry, it will pass.”

Early music does stick with you, doesn’t it? Pass it will, FB colleagues, but hopefully not til years later!
