Echoes of the Ages

Jolle Greenleaf, soprano

Hank Heijink, archlute

“A Golden Soprano”

–The New York Times

Echoes of the Ages explores themes and variations for lute and soprano in the glorious and rare sound world of The TANK.

The dynamic duo Soprano Jolle Greenleaf and Lutenist Hank Heijink will share Renaissance and early Baroque music especially composed in its day to highlight echoes in their most immediate form.

Purchase tickets here.

Hank Heijink and Jolle Greenleaf will play with each phrase in stylistic slow motion, allowing the TANK to respond.  The gentle nature of the lute’s sound – an instrument especially dear to Renaissance royalty – will reverberate as never before.

What will this ancient music sound like in such a resonant environment?  Exquisite, soul-stirring, unique.

Come and hear these acclaimed artists as they present music by Henry Purcell, John Dowland, Hildegarde von Bingen, Johannes Hieronymus Kapsberger, and Giacomo Carissimi, along with their own creations, in collaboration with The Tank itself.

Admission to this concert is $75 for inside seating–a peak experience–and $10 for outside seating, where you can listen to the concert through our landscape speaker array under the stars.

Purchase tickets here.

Listen to Jolle Greenleaf

 

Hailed as a “golden soprano” and “a major force in the New York early music-scene” (The New York Times), soprano Jolle Greenleaf is one of today’s foremost figures in the field of early music. Balancing a career as a leading soloist and an innovative impresario, she is in great demand both as a guest artist and as the artistic director of TENET Vocal Artists, a premier New York-based ensemble specializing in early music. She is a celebrated interpreter of the music of Bach Buxtehude, Handel, Purcell, and most notably, Monteverdi. She has performed as a soloist in venues throughout the U.S., Scandinavia, Europe, and Central America for important presenters including Vancouver Early Music Festival, Denmark’s Vendsyssel Festival, Costa Rica International Music Festival, Puerto Rico’s Festival Casals, Utrecht Festival, at Panama’s National Theater, and San Cristobal, the Cathedral in Havana, Cuba.

Hank Heijink has played all over the world with leading ensembles such as the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra with Ton Koopman, Orchestre d’Auvergne, Mark Morris Dance Group, and the Wooster Group. As a member of the European Union Baroque Orchestra, he toured extensively throughout Europe, Asia, Scandinavia. He has collaborated with Richard Egarr, Nigel North, and Christina Pluhar, among others, and has taken part in productions including Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, Cavalli’s La Didone, and Monteverdi’s Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria, among others. As a regular member of TENET, Mr. Heijink can be heard on the ensemble’s entire discography and as a soloist on UNO + ONE: Italia Nostra and The Secret Lover. A native of Eindhoven in the Netherlands, he holds a performance degree from the Royal Conservatory of the Hague, a master of arts degree in computer science, and a Ph.D. in social sciences.
