Praised as “Britain’s finest period violinist” (BBC Music Magazine), Rachel Podger has injected new life into the Baroque tradition. Her affinity for the Baroque began at an early age when she sought more from her modern studies and followed her curiosity to begin mastering the Baroque violin. She went on to co-found the period group Palladian Ensemble, was an early member of Floriegium, led The English Concert from 1997 to 2002, and in 2018, was named Gramophone’s ‘Artist of the Year.’ Rachel Podger’s passion for Baroque masterpieces shines through lifting the beauty of these works and the skill of their composers to the forefront.

This recital marks the debut of Veils for Desire, created by members of the American Modern Opera Company, an exciting new collective of some of today’s most gifted, curious, and innovative artists and recently named one of “19 for 19 Artists to Watch” by WQXR. Built around Britten’s dramatic canticle Abraham and Isaac, this inventive recital features works that “veil” or transform unspeakable desires into new, mysterious forms. Also included are works by Bach, Monteverdi, and AMOC Co-Artistic Director and 2018 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Aucoin. AMOC artists will be joined by special guest Wayne Koestenbaum, celebrated poet and scholar, whose playful, multi-layered texts — newly written for the occasion — will weave these works together. Join us for this intense, intimate journey!
