Dorothee Oberlinger rescues the noble recorder from the grubby clutches of school children wheezing their way through "Merrily We Roll Along." For while this ancient flute might look simple, it is no plaything for tootling tots. In fact, in hands of an undisputed master like the prize-winning Oberlinger, it is one of the most supple and nuanced members of the woodwind family. Now Oberlinger brings her Diapason D'Or-winning program of music from Venice's golden age, including works by Vivaldi, Corelli, and others. She will be joined by Alexander Puliaev (harpsichord) and Marco Testori (baroque cello) for this special performance at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts. Come early for the pre-concert lecture by Robert Kendrick, Professor of Music at the University of Chicago.
