Houston Early Music's season opening concert features two of the Renaissance era's most important instruments: the organ and the cornetto. Acclaimed as the “Orfeo of the Cornetto,” Bruce Dickey received the Historic Brass Society’s Christopher Monk Award in 2000 and was honored with a Taverner Award in 2007. He returns to Houston with the celebrated Dutch organist Liuwe Tamminga, a distinguished specialist in 16th and 17th century Italian organ repertoire. Together they will collaborate in a program reanimating beloved Italian and Spanish Renaissance masterworks by Giovanni Gabrieli, Palestrina and Frescobaldi.

This concert will be co-presented with Bach Society Houston.
