Plan to join us for the final concert of this season:
In the seventh and final Salish Sea Early Music Festival performance at Knox United Church 2019, harpsichordist Jonathan Oddie, violinist Stephen Creswell, baroque cellist Caroline Nicolas and one-key baroque flutist Jeffrey Cohan perform quartets stretching through the 18th century by Telemann, C.P.E. Bach, Joseph Haydn and others in 18th-Century Quartets on Wednesday, June 19 at 7:30 PM at Knox United Church at 5600 Balaclava Street, in Kerrisdale, Vancouver.
The program will range from one of the most well known quartets for these instruments by Georg Philipp Telemann from early in the century to a quartet for obbligato keyboard with flute, viola, cello by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714 – 1788), a quartet by Joseph Haydn and other rarely heard quartets by little-known late 18th-century composers Tommaso Giordani (c. 1730-1806), J. Schmittbauer (1718 – 1809) and Johann Gottlieb Naumann (1741 – 1801).
