Bruce Dickey, cornetto; Hana Blažíková, soprano; Avi Stein, organ

This concert pairs the outstanding voice of Czech soprano Hana Blažíková with international early-music star Bruce Dicky on the cornetto, fabled for its astonishing ability to imitate the human voice. The program, celebrating this imitation, begins at the turn of the 17th century, when singers and cornetists were consummate improvisers, and ends 100 years later with opera and oratorio excerpts by Alessandro Scarlatti and Giovanni Battista Bassani. In the middle, a modern setting of the Nigra sum text by Greek composer Calliope Tsoupaki provides a serene antiphonal moment for both performers.
