This concert will shed a new light on the great Italian composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, offering two masterpieces, lost for almost 300 years, in their first modern editions.  These new editions of the Mass in D major and the motet Dignas Laudes  are the outcome of recent musicological research carried out by the Centro Studi Pergolesi in Milan, and show a facet of Pergolesi – his energetic and solemn character – that complements and amplifies the dramatic and introspective moods of his most renowned sacred works.

Tickets: $35 general admission; $25 students/seniors

Pre-Concert Lecture at 7:00 pm.
