Canadian Brass

By Jacob Stockinger

This Saturday night at 8 p.m., the Wisconsin Baroque Ensemble (below) will perform a concert of baroque vocal and instrumental chamber music performed on period instruments.

The concert will take place at the Historic Gates of Heaven Synagogue (below) in James Madison Park in downtown Madison at 300 East Gorham Street.

Gates of Heaven

The performers include: Consuelo Sañudo – mezzo soprano; Theresa Koenig – recorder, baroque bassoon; Brett Lipshutz – traverse; Monica Steger – traverso, recorder; Eric Miller – viola da gamba, baroque cello; Anton TenWolde – baroque cello (below); and Max Yount – harpsichord

Tickets are available at the door only: General admission is $15 ($10 for students). Feel free to bring your own chair or pillow (the wooden pews can feel very hard and uncomfortable).

Here is the unusual program. The first composer is so obscure, the members of the ensemble say that they don’t even have initials for him.

2.    Louis-Antoine Dornel (1685-1765) – Sonata No. 4 in D Major from Sonatas for Solo Violin and Suite for Flute

3.    Jean Baptiste Barrière – Cello Sonata No. 3, Book 2

4.    George Friderich Handel – Sonata 4 in A minor for recorder and basso continuo, HWV 362   (See and hear the YouTube video at bottom.)

5.    Clemente Imaña – “Filis yo tengo”

INTERMISSION

6.    Georg Böhm – Capriccio in D major
