Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir

Renowned and "perpetually fabulous" (Boston Globe) Canadian violinist Aisslinn Nosky directs Passions Revealed, a program designed to stir the depths of the soul. Baroque composers believed in music's profound ability to evoke emotions, and this performance is a testament to that conviction. Journey through the peaks and valleys of human emotion, from the wistful yearning of Locatelli's Concerto Grosso in C Minor to the buoyant cheer of Telemann's Orchestral Suite in B-flat Major. Vivaldi's evocative Concerto for Bassoon "La Notte" transports you to phantoms and dreamscapes, featuring Tafelmusik's own Dominic Teresi. In the grand finale, Bach's masterful Concerto for 2 Violins spotlights Nosky and Tafelmusik's Johanna Novom. Don't miss Passions Revealed from February 23–25, at Jeanne Lamon Hall, before Tafelmusik takes this captivating program on a U.S. tour. Tickets available at their website.

The Toronto Consort

The Toronto Consort presents Songs of the Palace, February 9 & 10 at 8pm at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre. In the year 1492 three caravels set sail from Spain. In the search for new trade routes, the discovery of the Americas had far-reaching consequences and profoundly affected both European societies and the Indigenous communities of the “New World”. Concurrently, other significant changes unfolded across Europe, including the surrender of Granada and the expulsion of Muslim and Jewish populations in Spain. Their program aims to explore the sounds of European art music as it reached the shores of Central America, with a particular focus on the Spanish manuscripts Cancionero de Palacio and the Codex Segovia. A time of new musical development, coming out of the late Middle Ages and transitioning to the Renaissance, the end of the 15th century is characterized by a strong polyphonic tradition and the use both of voices and of instruments. Find out more here.
