New York s leading early music ensemble TENET presents The Secret Lover, a program that celebrates music by, for, and about women and pays tribute to the 17th-century Concerto delle donne, a trio of extraordinarily gifted professional female singers who were renowned for their performances in the courts of the late Italian Renaissance. Three of TENET s own leading ladies sopranos Jolle Greenleaf and Molly Quinn, and mezzo-soprano Virginia Warnken Kelsey honor the spirit of these pioneering women with a recording featuring solos and trios that weave a story thread to create a musical portrayal of three women and their complex emotional lives. As a 21st-century tribute, TENET has commissioned a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, which they perform alongside music by Caccini, Rossi, Strozzi, and others.
