Featuring Pacific Baroque Orchestra

A digital production available online only, presented by Early Music Vancouver

 

Alexander Weimann, Music Director, Harpsichord; Chloe Meyers, Concertmaster & Solo Violin 1; Christi Meyers, Solo Violin 2; Paul Luchkow, Violin; Elyssa Lefurgey-Smith, Violin; Mieka Michaux, Viola; Diederik van Dijk, Cello; Natalie Mackie, Violone; Soile Stratkauskas, Solo Flute

 

These two most beloved of Bach’s concertos exuberantly celebrate ensemble playing, a joy keenly felt by the musicians of Pacific Baroque Orchestra during this year of isolation. Each concerto features not a single soloist but rather a trio – flute, violin and harpsichord in Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 and two violins accompanied by bass instruments in the Double Violin Concerto. The rest of the ensemble supports the soloists and comments on their playing often in a song-like alternation of catchy tutti refrain and fanciful solo verse.

Access to the concert is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. Concert will remain online one year from premiere date.

 

Presented in partnership with the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts through the support of the Chan Endowment Fund at the University of British Columbia. This concert is generously supported by an anonymous donor and a donation in memory of Vic Baker.
