Serenata – Arioso Chamber Ensemble
5 May 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm AEST
Arioso Chamber Ensemble will serenade you with master works of the Baroque by Vivaldi, Corelli, De Fesch, and Handel.
Lovers of Baroque music in South-East Queensland will once again enjoy performances by Arioso Chamber Ensemble in the coming weeks.
Expressing love, longing, contentment and faith, Vivaldi’s showstopping arias will transport and delight audiences.
Contrasting arias by Handel celebrate the wonders of the natural world in which we live, presented together with virtuosic and expressive instrumental works by Corelli and De Fesch in an enjoyable and varied programme.
The Arioso Chamber Ensemble brings together the talents and experience of leading specialists in historically informed performance: Hungarian soprano Judit Molnár, Margaret Caley (baroque violin), Belinda Manwaring (baroque cello) and Janet Brewer (harpsichord).
Formed in January 2014 for the “Music by the Sea” Festival, Sandgate, they have since performed at many festivals and concert series, including Brisbane City Hall, 4MBS Festival of Classics, Caloundra Fringe Festival, New England Bach Festival, Robert Channon Wines.
The group aims to present high quality engaging performances and workshops with an emphasis on Historically Informed Practice.
Their extensive repertoire features well known Baroque favourites as well as lesser known gems.
The instruments used are made by leading Australian luthiers, based on instruments of the Baroque era, giving the group its unique sound.
Individually each artist has played throughout Europe and / or Asia, and the combined international experience of all performers will ensure a unique and memorable performance.
Concerts 2,3 &4 are part of the 4MBS Festival of Classics 2019.
