Four Nations Ensemble performs at the Collection Jan. 25

Strange Accents: Composers Writing in Foreign Styles features music by Telemann, Geminiani, and more
January 16, 2015

FourNations-webThe Collection of Musical Instruements at the Yale School of Music presents the Four Nations Ensemble on Sunday, January 25 at 3:00 pm.

Many Baroque composers traveled throughout Europe seeking patronage, education, and for holiday. These cultural exchanges allowed composers to wear different musical hats, i.e., to be German and compose in decidedly French or Italian styles. This concert will celebrate the virtuosity of these composers, including Telemann, Leclair, Geminiani, Handel, and more.

The Four Nations Ensemble brings together soloists who are leading exponents of period instrument and vocal performance. The Ensemble has recently performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Boston Early Music Festival, and New York’s Mostly Mozart.

“…rich and warm tone… a storm of virtuosity…”
— Gramophone
