On June 24 & 25 in Philadelphia, Ms. Montalbano performed with The Crossing in a unique blend of old and new music. Seven Responses is a performance of Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri (a collection of 7 cantatas) alongside 7 brand new commissions. Joining The Crossing in this project are International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and Quicksilver Baroque.
The program will be reprised as a part of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival on Sunday, August 21.
Below are a couple of sneak peeks at Ms. Montalbano singing solo in Anna Thorvaldsdottir‘s “Ad genua” (to the knees).
