Gold and Glitter: Aulos Ensemble presents music from Venice and Versailles Feb. 22

aulos_webThe Yale Collection of Musical Instruments presents the Aulos Ensemble on Sunday, February 22 at 3:00 pm. The acclaimed ensemble will present a program called Gold and Glitter: Music from Venice and Versailles.

Founded in 1973, The Aulos Ensemble was one of the first American “original instrument” ensembles. Its accomplishments over the past four decades have given it preeminence in the early music movement. Early Music America said of a recent Rameau recording, “The performers exhibit a masterfully controlled sense of ensemble throughout, and their precisely articulated delivery breathes with Rameau’s subtly dramatic phrasal undulations. The effect is exquisite.”

The members of the ensemble include harpsichordist Arthur Haas, a member of the YSM faculty, as well as Linda Quan, violin; Christopher Krueger, flute; Marc Schachman, oboe; and Myron Lutzke, cello. MORE
