Revered recording artist, Wigmore Hall recitalist, & Juilliard faculty-member Rachel Podger joins us from the UK for a program featuring some of the 17th century’s best repertoire, joyously scored for three violins and continuo, including a very fresh interpretation of Pachelbel’s ubiquitous Canon.  Our concert tour includes a workshop with Rachel presented by the UM School of Music on January 7.

Candide's Voltaire

Arwen Meyers, soprano & Aaron Shehan, tenor
Carrie Krause, baroque violin & Josh Lee, viola da gamba
John Lenti, theorbo

Voltaire was a walking superlative. He was the most famous man in Europe. He was also the most prolific author, the best-loved playwright, the busiest letter-writer. He was the most in love, and he drank the most coffee. He was the greatest annoyance to cruelty, tyranny, and ignorance. Near the end of his amazingly long life, he wrote the hilarious, tragic, philosophical novel for which he is best-known, Candide. We’ll show you how he got there in this uncategorizable program. You want love songs? We got ‘em, sung by literal Grammy-winners. Hilarity? You bet. Tragedy? Yeah, bring a hanky. Care for some heart-stopping virtuoso music on viola da gamba? We’ll throw that in, too.

Fairest Isle

Carrie Krause & David Greenberg, baroque violin
Nate Helgeson, baroque bassoon & Annabeth Shirley, cello

Come away with us on a journey to the British Isles. 18th century England was a melting pot of traditional and cutting-edge arts, where folk melodies blended with new French and Italian forms. We explore these developments in music of Purcell, Handel, Oswald, Jones, and others. Bringing together dance tunes, song arrangements, and courtly sonatas, this program truly has delights in store for everyone.
