Alchemy: Earth

NYBI launches Alchemy, a series based on the classical elements: water, air, earth, and fire. Program features a pan-European selection of works by J. S. Bach, Louis-Nicolas Clérambault, George Frideric Handel, Pietro Locatelli, Georg Philip Telemann and Antonio Vivaldi. 


Noises from the Field

Barking dogs, bleating sheep, crowing roosters. Distant musettes and hurdy-gurdies played by solitary shepherds. These are noises from the field; natural, rustic sounds that bring us back to a simpler pastoral life.
