Tasty Classics

Seventeenth century English composer Henry Purcell’s ode Come, Ye Sons of Art will be performed May 14 in the latest Tasty Classics event in Warsaw, a series that combines a classical music concert with a dinner.

“This will be a big musical performance with a big choir—bigger than previous evenings in the series in which, for example, we had a quintet, sextet or smaller ensemble playing,” said Richard Berkeley, president of the New Chamber Orchestra Foundation, the public-benefit organization staging the event.

“Faced with the awfulness of the economic crisis and savage cuts in government spending on the arts, Tasty Classics is bucking the trend. Rather than doing less, it is doing more,” he added.

The evening promises an almost full performance of Come, Ye Sons of Art, with instruments, choir and soloists of the New Chamber Orchestra, followed by British composer Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony, a work that premiered in 1934.

The evening will begin with a short illustrated talk and end with music by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla.
