Pre-concert talk “Barockin’ Bass” by Mathilde van Wijnen
Concert “Barockin’ Bass”
Music for two cellos, cello and bassoon, cello and bass and a combination of all four!
Josephine van Lier, baroque cello
Mathilde van Wijnen, basse de violon (Netherlands)
Pablo Montes, baroque bassoon
James Mallet, baroque bass
A baroque cello, a basse de violon, a baroque bassoon and a baroque bass will take to the stage for an unforgettable evening of music featuring some very virtuoso and heartbreakingly beautiful music for several combinations of all of these instruments. If you ever thought these instruments were having a bass-function-only in the baroque era; you will be in for a pleasant surprise! You will be taken on a journey through Italy and France in the 17th and 18th centuries with music that you will still be whistling on your drive home!
Local superstars will be joined by our friend Mathilde van Wijnen from the Netherlands on basse de violon.
