If you thought the recorder was just an instrument for school concerts, think again! In February 2018, Tafelmusik presents A Recorder Romp, which highlights the instrument in ebullient concertos by Vivaldi and Telemann for one, two, three and more soloists, and a set of 'nightingale' variations from 17th-century Holland. The music and instruments which grace these concerts will be explored in this two-session RCM survey course by Tafelmusik's recorder soloist Alison Melville, who will also offer some 'insider' insight on the individual and collaborative creative processes which bring such a program to life. Join us to enhance your enjoyment of the concert, and to broaden your horizons about this often-misunderstood instrument!
Registrants will also receive a 15% discount to Tafelmusik's Recorder Romp performance featuring Alison Melville on February 8 - 11, 2018 at Jeanne Lamon Hall in Trinity St. Paul's Centre.
"Melville shapes the phrases marvellously; music, breath, and ornaments are as one. This is art beyond time - the moment might last forever." - Early Music America.
