Sensual Art; Houston Early Music announces 2012-2013 season, debuts Emerging Artists Series

HOUSTON, TX – July 5, 2012 – Houston Early Music, premier presenter of the world’s finest period ensembles and soloists, is introducing something new to audiences this year.

For its 2012-2013 season, Houston Early Music will debut its Emerging Artists Series, adding to its usual line-up of world-class performers.----

Nancy Ellis, artistic director, said the new series will make for an especially exciting season. “We always search to bring first-class ensembles and soloists to Houston audiences,” Ellis said. “This year, we searched some of the most interesting emerging artists to put a new twist on our season.”

Magali Suárez Candler, Houston Early Music Board member, said the Emerging Artists Series distinguishes the organization. “It is something we can truly be proud to offer,” she said. “Nancy Ellis is excellent at discovering new artists and new groups. She is gifted at finding and recognizing talent and always brings wonderful groups to the stage.”

Hispanic Heritage Series: The Kingdoms of Castille

The season opens with Grammy-nominated ensemble El Mundo. Directed by guitarist and lutenist Richard Savino, the ensemble will play music of the 17th and 18th centuries from Spain and her Latin American colonies. A very active music scene in cathedrals and the courtly life, combined with the participation of the local populations and their folk music, produced a delightful intersection of elegance and simplicity. In “The Kingdoms of Castille,” the ensemble uses voices, violins, lute, percussion and harpsichord to create sounds ranging from folk-like to sublimely sensual.

“Richard Savino is a world-renowned performer, and we’re honored to have him come back to Houston for this concert,” Candler said.

The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12 at Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church. A pre-concert talk with ensemble members starts at 6:45 p.m.

Wassail, Wassail!

On Tuesday, Dec. 11, the Baltimore Consort will ring in the holiday season.

“We’ve presented them before, and they’ve always been one of our most popular concerts,” Candler said. “The Baltimore Consort brings the joy of the season and of music to our city.”

The ensemble has toured the United States, Canada and Europe for more than 30 seasons. This year, the dynamic group’s performance entitled “Wassail, Wassail!” will feature voices and a festive variety of instruments – lute, cittern, viols, crumhorns, recorders, rebec and percussion – and a mélange of old carols and dance tunes from the British Isles, Germany, France, Spain and the New World.

The Yuletide celebration will start at 7:30 p.m. at Christ Church Cathedral. A pre-concert talk with ensemble members begins at 6:45 p.m

Emerging Artists Series: Udite Amanti – Lovers Beware!

Texas-based Armonia Celeste is an up-and-coming group specializing in rarely heard music from the Italian Renaissance and early Baroque eras. The ensemble is comprised of three distinct female voices accompanied by period instruments: lute, theorbo, guitar and Baroque triple harp.

Each of the five members is an exciting solo performer in their own right, and together, the musicians create an unforgettable combination of vocal and instrumental notes, ornamented with a noticeable passion for the group’s repertoire.

The program, “Udite Amanti – Lovers Beware!,” highlights Roman composers of the mid-17th-century, when the Barberini family was a great supporter of vocal chamber music. Featured composers include Rossi, Carissimi and Cesti. To complete the historical picture, a copy of the famous Barberini harp, made for this prestigious family in 1635, will be played in this concert.

The event is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013 at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church. A pre-concert talk with ensemble members begins at 6:45 p.m.


The season continues with a performance produced in collaboration with Da Camera of Houston. At 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, 2013, the French ensemble La Poème Harmonique will take the stage at Cullen Theater, in the Wortham Theater Center, for its Houston debut.

The French ensemble was founded in 1998 and recaptures the poetry of early music, particularly of the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras. Semi-staged in candlelight, the program “Venezia” features works by Claudio Monteverdi, Biagio Marini, Francesco Manelli and Benedetto Ferrari. The evening will be a celebration of Venice in the Golden Age, when art music and popular forms came together and mingled, before emotion and language were restrained by rules and codes.

The Black Dragon: music from the time of Vlad Dracula

The season closes with Cançonier, a San Francisco-based ensemble devoted to medieval repertoire from the 12th to 15th centuries and traditional music from Scandinavia, the Balkans, and the Middle East.

“The Black Dragon: music from the time of Vlad Dracula” features 15th-century music from the time of the infamous Vlad the Impaler, whose tyrannical rule shocked Europe.

Ensemble member Shira Kammen is known for her early-music performances in Houston on medieval fiddle and harp. The program features the “Lamentation for the Fall of Constantinople” by Dufay, French and Italian dance music, German songs and Balkan folk songs.

“The audience will enjoy this ensemble’s creative presentation and unusual repertoire,” said Candler.

The event is set for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 26, 2013, at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church. A pre-concert talk with ensemble members begins at 6:45 p.m.

Full season subscriptions to theHouston Early Music 2012-2013 season are available now and can be purchased at A mini-pass option is also offered. For more information, e-mail or call 281-846-4222.

Miss Sensual

As ever Guess by Marciano presents a sensual, classy lady for the coming Fall Winter 2009 2010 season. She is unforgettable in attire that takes her to any situation, at any time and in any place.

Contemporary - This season's daywear for the Guess by Marciano woman is minimal yet deliberately modern chic for a truly emancipated look. Black predominates with flashes of purple, acid green and sharp tones of blue. Patterns and details are everywhere; macro-square prints in a palette of shaded colors and super showy zips in every size imaginable, like accessories adorning knits, skirts and even shirts. Rigid wool, stretch quilting and technical cottons explore innovative couture effects, while knits are light and perfectly adapted for warming against the first chills of the winter months. Coats and outerwear alternate from figure hugging sensual fits to a crescendo of volume given through plissé effects, application of shoulder warmers or rigid sleeveless capes. A darling seamless, short coat in the softest of wool flannel in oval form will surely let her stand out from the crowd. Pants and skirts are sophisticatedly slim-lined and adorned with precious belts, again in minimal chic style. Plissé effects also find their place on dresses giving them new life and form almost like butterflies in full flight.
Urban - She is a faithful follower of minimal chic but with the eclectic taste and refinement that only the Guess by Marciano woman possesses to astound and stand out from the crowd. A little snob and a little hippy, her attire included mini-wool capes, bat-wing sleeved dresses in puckered, rhombus print and striped silk, mono-color slim-fit skirts and snakeskin print dresses. Suits, combinations and a multitude of dresses are the leitmotiv of this urban style. Seduction is her mantra and she expresses herself perfectly in a myriad of dresses in many materials perfectly suited to her day, viscose tweed, jersey, wool, all teamed with mohair knits. Pants are high-waist or palazzo style for a truly classy look and are teamed with soft-woven, knit jackets and flowing shirts enriched with bows. A down jacket is tiered in printed technical fabrics to hug the figure and is enriched with surprising sprays of almost fur-effect color for a really feminine style. Her look is unique thanks to blends of heavy knit, bi-color and tri-color dresses.
Luxury - Sensual and always elegant, the Guess by Marciano woman is ready for an evening out full of tango-rock sex appeal. Lavish, see-through, black lace and satins and silks are key to her look. A game of mix and match for knits with unusual silk-scarf prints and many details and applications, along with sharp contrasts of style, such as a long smoking jacket with satin lapels teamed with a daringly slit-skirt, bustier dress or super-slim fit lace pants. A down jacket is enriched with ruches and plays chameleon, changing into a super-tight jacket for a truly feminine effect. The whole in a color palette composed of black, white, red, gold, and all the tones of blonde.
