Yale Collection of Musical Instruments opens concert season with “Crossing the Rhine” Sep. 23

“Extraordinary elegance.”  –The Berkshire Review

The Yale Collection of Musical Instruments opens its 2012–2013 concert season on Sunday, September 23 with “Crossing the Rhine,” a concert of 18th-century music from France and Germany featuring the acclaimed trio of Wieland Kuijken, viola da gamba; Eva Legêne, recorder; and Arthur Haas, harpsichord.

Reviewing a performance by the trio in The Berkshire Review, Seth Lachterman wrote: “Nothing… could have prepared me for the extraordinary elegance of today’s recital with renowned gambist Wieland Kuijken, recorder virtuoso Eva Legêne, and harpsichordist Arthur Haas.”

The Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, one of the foremost institutions of its kind, preserves and exhibits musical instruments from antiquity to the present. Many instruments are maintained in playing condition and are featured in performances and demonstrations in the fine acoustic of the upstairs gallery, the venue for this performance.

The concert begins at 3 pm at the Collection, which is located at 15 Hillhouse Avenue. Tickets are $20, $15 for seniors, and $10 for students. For more information, call the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158 or visit music.yale.edu/concerts.
