It was like no other performance I have ever been to!
It was in a Cafe setting with an eclectic mix of chairs and a few tables. It was a lot more relaxed and light-hearted. I am used to seeing Baroque music performed in a very serious way. This time it was all about fun.
I loved it!
We started off with the Prelude from Partita for solo violin No. 6 in E-Major, BWV 1006.
Then we had the Coffee Cantata BWV 211, Schweight stille, plaudert nicht - Kaffeekantate.
And after the coffee break, the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D Major, BWV 1050.
They were amazing!
I especially loved the harpsichord!
I never get to hear harpsichord solos and it was just wonderful!
Our performers were:
- Domenico Sanfilippo - Bass Baritone
- Vania Chan - Soprano
- Bud Roach - Tenor
- Andres Tucci-Clarke - Cello
- Joanna Marsden - Flute
- Rezan Onen-Lapointe - Violin
- David Podgorski - Harpsichord
- Jimin Shin - Viola
- Kailey Richards - Violin
It was so good to see Andres again.
He helps out with the TDSB Downtown Summer Strings.
And here is a picture of me with Rezan and David.
Thank you so much Rezan for inviting me!
