A program of glittering and fiery chamber concertos and trio sonatas for oboe, violin, recorder/traverso, bassoon and harpsichord, with a focus on Antonio Vivaldi – plus a taste of some music from his northern European neighbours G. P. Telemann and J.C. Fasch.
Italian harpsichordist Stefano Demicheli joins Marco Cera (oboe), Alison Melville (recorder, traverso), Cristina Zacharias (violin) and Dominic Teresi (bassoon) for this frolic through a sunny musical landscape. We had so much fun playing some of this music for Tafelmusik’s Recorder Romp last year that we decided we just HAD to play some more.
Supported in part by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura of Toronto, to whom we say ‘Grazie mille!’
Thursday May 16, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. Heliconian Hall, 35 Hazelton Avenue, Toronto.

“…The final Concerto in G minor was marvellous, difficult, complex and masterfully played. Certainly worth the standing ovation it elicited.” Ontario Arts Review.
