Milwaukee – What better way to prepare for Valentine’s Day than a program of love songs performed by the world-renowned duo of soprano Ellen Hargis and lutenist Paul O’Dette.  Presented as part of the 19th season of Early Music Now, this program of lute songs and solos from 17th century France, England, and Italy will be presented at All Saints’ Cathedral in Milwaukee on Saturday, February 4th at 5:00, preceded by a short lecture at 4:30.  Under the title Amour, Cruel Amour, the repertoire will include music of Wilson, Lanier, Le Camus, Vallet, Rossi, and Castaldi (see complete program at the bottom of this page!).
 
As part of its 19th season as the area’s premier early music presenter, Early Music Now, is also offering this program in the stunning chapel of First United Methodist Church in Evanston (Illinois) on Friday, February 3rd at 7:30 (with a pre-concert at 7:00), and at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Madison on Sunday, February 5th at 1:30 (with a pre-concert lecture at 1:00).  
 
Love – requited, unrequited, erotic, and platonic – has been the primary subject of most secular song from the very beginnings of music.  Possibly no other period in music history has as rich a repertory of canti amorosi as does the 17th century.  Tens of thousands of early Baroque songs, by professional and amateur composers alike, survive in manuscripts and prints from throughout Europe, representing an amazing array of viewpoints on love, and its trials and tribulations.  The majority of those songs were accompanied by the most delicate of all musical instruments – the lute, and its larger relative, the theorbo.  The songs were usually performed before a small gathering of select listeners, allowing the intimacy of the music and poetry to be brought out with all their subtleties.
 
No better exponents of this delicate and expressive music can be found on the concert stage today.  According to The Moscow News, “Hargis often performs with Paul O’Dette (wonderful lutenist) who provides exceptional accompaniment for her impressive and hauntingly pure soprano.”
