Salsa Baroque
Ensemble Caprice
Matthias Maute & Sophie Larivière, recorders & traversos
Susie Napper, violincello David Jacques, baroque guitar
Ziya Tabassian, percussion

During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the musical dialogue between the Old and the New Worlds produced extraordinary results. This fascinating blend of European polyphony and Latin American traditional music created a unique style. Gems from this spectacular musical era will be performed on instruments that were common at the time: flutes and recorders, baroque guitar, violoncello and various percussion instruments

Handel’s Dixit Dominus
Red Deer Symphony Orchestra & VoiceScapes

EMV brings you another Alberta premiere of baroque repertoire on period instruments!

Handel's Dixit Dominus contains some of his most exuberant and thrilling, as well as hauntingly beautiful choral music. Presented along with his Nisi Dominus (using similar forces) and his Concerto Grosso op. 6, no.2, this repertoire shows off the virtuosity of our accomplished singers and instrumentalists. Another exciting co-production with the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra, this concert assembles nearly the same forces as our successful and critically-acclaimed B Minor Mass celebration of 2 years ago!

Putting the Devil to Flight
Il Furioso
Victor Coelho & David Dolata, lutes; Neil Cockburn, organ
With Robert Crowe, male soprano

Martin Luther loved music, saying that among its charms was that it "put the Devil to flight." This concert will feature sacred solo music of the 17th and 18th centuries including the previously unrecorded, bravura "Amen, Allelujas" composed by G. F. Handel for the daughters of George II. Male soprano, Robert Crowe joins Il Furioso in a recreation of a lively, private Sunday afternoon of music-making for the Protestant upper class.
