Concert Opening Concert Experience Focusing on Little Known Works Redefining the Scope of 18th-century classical music Reviving 18th-century classical music in Latin America unbearable, the Chicago Arts Orchestra (CAO) opens a choir choir work on 2014 season in 2014 by Antonio Rodríguez de Hita (1722-1787) and Antonio Juanas (ca.1755-1818) which colored the music scene in Spain and Mexico. Joining the guests, The Kapelle of Concordia University Chicago, CAO presents two shows “Discovery IV: Music of the 18th Century Spain and Mexico”: 8 p.m. Friday, February 28, at First United Church of Oak Park, Oak Park, Illinois and 8 nights. Saturday, March 1, at St. Catholic Church Alphonsus, 1429 W. Wellington Ave., Chicago, Illinois Drew Edward Davies, PhD, a professor of musicology at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, chaired Prelude’s pre-concert discussions at 7:30 pm focusing on the history of compositions found in areas normally not related to classical music. The highlighting concert included “Missa Ecce Sacerdos Magnus” Rodríguez de Hita and the premiere of other works found in Mexico and associated with the Spanish emperor who has gotten disillusioned, until now. Upcoming events add a new dimension to CAO’s collaboration with The Kapelle because of its distinctive musical origins, which capture the sensitivity of 18th century Europe and the New World. CAO’s relationship with the choir ensemble came from 2007 when both groups, along with Cantate chans choir, featured “Requiem” Bradley Ellingboe. The series “The Rediscovered Treasures” established CAO’s niche in a local music scene “saturated with eclectic style,” CAO said. Charles P. Brown, DMA, Kapelle Conductor and music professor Concordia University. “This special effort with CAO allows intimate collaboration between the orchestra and the choir with a happy, meditative and reflective moment during the program,” Brown said. “The music is moving, and it makes me wonder how many more beautiful music are waiting to be rediscovered.” CAO was at the forefront of an international movement to draw public attention to Spanish colonial music; Mexico itself maintains the legacy of thousands of musical works that are still not there or in the US. CAO’s first album was released in 2013, “Al Combate: Rediscovered Galant Music from Eighteenth-Century Mexico,” featuring works by Ignacio Jerusalem (1707-1769) and Santiago Billoni (1700-1763) and the orchestra won praise from international publications, including Early Music Today. “This music is familiar and unusual – surprising and pleasant to the listener,” Davies said. “It sounds like Mozart or Handel or other composers who are famous for classical music audiences, but the fact that it came from Spain or Mexico exploded previously held the conception of baroque and classical music by opening up a wider slate to imagine the musical past.
