Instrumental and vocal chamber music by Rossini, Mayr, Donizetti, and others. Mayr brought instrumental sophistication from the world of Haydn and Mozart along with him to Italy, and the younger Italian composers ate it up. Rossini was nicknamed “il tedesco” (the German), and Donizetti was a direct pupil and lifelong friend of Mayr.
Teatro Nuovo is a new organization under the artistic direction of Will Crutchfield, devoted to cutting-edge interpretation of classic Italian opera presenting exciting revivals of neglected Bel Canto masterworks alongside freshly re-studied interpretations of familiar favorites with virtuoso singing at the highest level allied to an interpretation that does justice to each opera’s dramatic content, structure, and style. Additionally, Teatro Nuovo also trains the rising generation of musicians in the special skills and knowledge required to bring this thrilling repertory to life.
