Apeiron Baroque | Trios for 4
25 March 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm AEDT
Apeiron Baroque invites you to a concert of music spanning the entire breadth of the Baroque era in a concert designed to be accessible to all ages and backgrounds. Highlights include a sonata of wild animal sounds by Heinrich Biber (the most famous composer from Salzburg), a dance tune from the Scottish lands, and music from a cloistered nun trapped in a time bubble. In addition, there is also music by lesser-known composers such as Handel, Telemann, and JS Bach.
In this first of four concerts for 2023, Apeiron is joined by two Canberran specialists, Lauren Davis (Violin) and Clara Teniswood (cello).
Apeiron Baroque was launched in 2022 by newly returned Early Music specialists, John Ma (Violin/Viola/d’amore) and Marie Searles (fortepiano/harpsichord). After honing their skills in the concert halls and ensembles of Europe over nearly two decades, the pair returned to Canberra to reconnect with family and to share their knowledge and experience with Australian colleagues and audiences. Marie and John regularly appear on concert stages in Canberra and around Australia.
Taking cues from other genres of music such as pub bands, jazz, and folk, Apeiron aims to present high-quality concerts that are honest, raw, and passionate in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Repertoire is chosen from the early Baroque (c.1700) through to the early Romantic (c.1850) and performed on period instruments in historically appropriate styles.
