Program Update: Baroque chamber orchestra to perform suites from Telemann’s Tafelmusik

The Yale School of Music will present Musique de Table: festive baroque orchestral suites from Telemann’s Tafelmusik (1733) on Thursday, May 6, 2010 at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall in Sprague Hall. This program celebrates Telemann’s landmark collection of suites and concertos known as “Tafelmusik,” and written for performance by his Hamburg collegium musicum: an ensemble of students much like our own. Performers are members of Robert Mealy’s class on baroque performance practice, with students playing on Yale’s own collection of baroque bows.

The program will include Telemann’s Overture for Trumpet and Oboe in D major; Concerto for Flute, Violin, and Cello in A major; Ouverture for Two Flutes in E minor; and Ouverture for Two Oboes in B-flat.

“Superb” early music ensemble Sarasa performs at Collection of Musical Instruments

Program of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons interspersed with music of Telemann

sarasaThe Yale Collection of Musical Instruments will present the “all-star” (Boston Globe) early music ensemble Sarasa on Sunday, January 24, 2010 at 3 pm. Led by artistic director and cellist Timothy Merton, a sextet will present a program centered around Vivaldi’s Four Seasons interspersed with works by Telemann. The concert will take place in the intimate venue of the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, one of the foremost institutions of its kind.

The ensemble, praised for its “enormous vitality” (Boston Globe) and “informed and impassioned musicmaking” (St. Petersburg Times), performs concerts in conventional settings but also aims to bring music to those who have little access to it – including audiences in correctional facilities, homes for the elderly, and other institutions. A chamber music ensemble of variable size that draws on a diverse pool of superb musicians from the US, Europe, and Canada, Sarasa will be represented in this performance by Elizabeth Blumenstock, Sarah Darling, and Amie Weiss, violins; Jenny Stirling, viola; Timothy Merton, violoncello; and Charles Sherman, harpsichord.
