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.
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)
