Mirrors: Jeanine De Bique with Concerto Köln3/26/2023 @ 4:00pm - 12:00 AM Carnegie Music Hall, Oakland
Sensational Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique and world-renowned German Baroque orchestra Concerto Köln take the stage at the beautiful Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland for a program featuring music from De Bique\'s acclaimed debut album Mirrors. Mirrors is centered around George Friderich Handel\'s arias for heroines of antiquity such as Cleopatra, Rodelinda, and Alcina, paired with arias for those same heroines written by Handel\'s contemporaries (Carl Heinrich Graun, Riccardo Broschi, and Georg Philipp Telemann). Through these varied musical characterizations of the same ancient subjects, De Bique and Concerto Köln demonstrate the complex relationship between text, music, and the meaning they imbue. Concerto Köln 8 violins, 3 violas, 2 cellos, double bass, lute, harpsichord
