Before its actual spring festival, the BOSTON EARLY MUSIC FESTIVAL is bringing the Flanders Recorder Quartet with Scottish soprano Susan Hamilton in for an evening of Elizabethan songs (First Congregational Church in Cambridge, November 4; 617.661.1812). Joel Cohen’s BOSTON CAMERATA performs even earlier “Gothic” music (Church of the Covenant and Newton’s Trinity Episcopal, October 20-21; 855.427.2092).

Richard Pittman’s BOSTON MUSICA VIVA has juicy new-music events featuring works by Thomas Adès (Tsai Performance Center, September 29; 617.354.6910) and Kurt Weill (November 17). Check out Boston’s other leading new-music groups at their Web sites: Collage New Music, Dinosaur Annex, Alea III, Composers in Red Sneakers, and Gil Rose’s Boston Modern Orchestra Project. And don’t overlook the superb musical events, many of them free, offered by our conservatories, colleges, and universities.
