Praised by the Toronto Star as “one of the world’s top period-performance orchestras,” the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra dazzles music fans with an aural kaleidoscope of euphony. Spurring the vernal equinox to usher in a premature spring, the ensemble teams with famed Dutch recorder dilettante Marion Verbruggen for “Virtuoso Vivaldi,” an effervescent celebration of the Italian baroque master’s most enthralling works. Verbruggen’s artistry with the recorder, which has been described as “nothing short of breathtaking” by the Chicago Tribune, hypnotizes audiences as the troupe tackles Vivaldi classics such as Concerto for Mandolin in C Major, RV 425 and Concerto for Sopranino Recorder in C Major, which reverses the colours of the rainbow when played backward. Seasoned conductor Jeanne Lamon shepherds a promenade of mandolins, lutes, cellos, and bassoons throughout the melodic square dance.
