Paul Luchkow, violin; Michael Jarvis, harpischord
The Luchkow-Jarvis Duo was formed by Paul Luchkow and Michael Jarvis in 2007 to explore sonata repertoire for violin and keyboard, particularly that of the classical and Romantic periods, on instruments appropriate to each historical period: Paul uses a collection of violins and bows that reflect the changes in construction that took place from the early 17th-century up to the present day. Michael performs on appropriate harpsichords, organs, fortepianos, and early 19th-century concert grands (in historical temperaments), bringing audiences closer to the colour, texture and expression the composers knew.
Paul Luchkow is a versatile violinist and violist whose activities cover the range of music from the 17th century to the present day on modern and period instruments. A regular feature of Vancouver’s Early Music scene, Paul is a long-time member of the Pacific Baroque orchestra, appears frequently in concerts for Early music Vancouver, and MusicFest Vancouver, and was a founding member of the Burney Ensemble and of Vancouver’s 17th century string band “La Cetra”.
Michael Jarvis has been acclaimed as one of Canada’s finest harpsichordists and fortepianists. He has performed across Canada, the USA, England, Italy and Bermuda. He has worked with many of Canada’s finest singers and is in demand as a coach and collaborative artist. Michael has recorded for the Hungaroton, ATMA, Naxos, and Marquis Classics labels, and has many times broadcast nationally and regionally for the CBC, as well as across the U.S. on NPR.
