Italian Cellists in London
Indulge in the lush sound of two cellos with baroque cello superstar Elinor Frey from Montreal and Early Music Alberta’s own Josephine van Lier. They will perform cello duos and sonatas by 17th and 18th century Italian cellists/composers who worked in London and who were instrumental in establishing the cello as a solo instrument. Several of the works were recently discovered and subsequently published by Elinor. The audience is in for a treat: some of these pieces have not been performed in many centuries!
A concert not soon to be forgotten.
