Returning for their fourth performance in the Concert Series, “the world’s reigning male chorus” (New Yorker) presents a program inspired by global travel entitled Trade Winds. Sultry and seductive, guiding us to exotic places, the Trade Winds have always been a part of the world’s history, urging explorers on. Gentle winds accompany the folkloric beauties of music from Pacific Islands such as Hawaii, Samoa and and New Zealand. Robust and carefree music old and new comes from the seafaring peoples of Europe. We revisit the attachment to China, we owe to composer Chen Yi, with a brand new work by Zhou Tian, setting Chinese poetry and John Masefields eponymous poem. Chanticleer's foundational repertoire of early music will be handsomely represented by music of the sea and the spheres by Monteverdi, Gesualdo, Victoria, and, for he first time Portuguese composer Filipe de Magalhaes.
