In-Studio: Les Ordinaires

les ordinaires

Our next In-Studio features the baroque ensemble Les Ordinaires, January 14th at 1pm, here at Classical 90.5 (619 S. Fourth Street). Free and open-to-the-public. No reservation required.

Les Ordinaires, meaning The Ordinaries to the king, made its debut at the 2014 Twin Cities Early Music Festival to critical acclaim. Comprised of leaders in the field of Early Music performance, Les Ordinaires presents programs that provide a personal and intimate connection between the performers and the music. Performing on copies of 18th century instruments, the combination of traverso, theorbo, and viola da gamba are known as the royal trio. Les Ordinaires’ musicians are Leela Breithaupt on Baroque flute, Erica Rubis on viola da gamba, and David Walker on theorbo.

In-Studio with Jack Ashworth

Jack Ashworth

There are more similarities between baroque music and jazz than you might imagine. Jack Ashworth talks about these connections, the famous La Folia variations, and plays Scarlatti and Gismonti.

Jack Ashworth joins Cléa Galhano and Brent Wissick for an Arts on the Corner concert at Highland Presbyterian Church on May 18, 2014 at 3pm.

Carnegie Hall Live: Arcangelo


One of the world’s freshest period-music ensembles, Arcangelo brings together exceptional musicians who display a passion for faithful interpretation that goes far beyond historical understanding. The group brings its dazzling technical ability to a program of works by J. S. Bach and J. C. Bach, as well as Handel’s mythological tale of unrequited love Apollo e Dafne, one of his most ambitious cantatas that set the stage for the brilliant operatic career that followed in the next 30 years of his life. Hear it Monday at 8pm. (Photo Credit: Mike Stone)
