Since its inception in 1878, Oberlin’s Artist Recital Series at historic Finney Chapel has presented more than 1,000 of the world’s most acclaimed and accomplished musicians, conductors, orchestras, chamber ensembles, and composers. On February 28, the ARS presents the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra!
The word Tafelmusik is German and means “table music” or “music for the feast.” Tafelmusik, Canada’s award-winning period instrument orchestra, was founded in 1979 by Kenneth Solway and Susan Graves, and has long been renowned in North America and internationally for its distinct, exhilarating and soulful performances. Under the outstanding leadership of Chief Artistic Advisor Jeanne Lamon, C.M., it has excelled equally in music ranging from the baroque and classical eras and beyond, including adventurous cross-cultural reinventions of baroque classics. Through its extensive national and international tours, its critically-acclaimed recordings and TV broadcasts, its new media initiatives and growing web of community and artistic partnerships, Tafelmusik is one of the most prolific orchestras in the world.
At the heart of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra is a group of seventeen remarkably talented, enthusiastic, and dynamic permanent members, each of who is a specialist in historical performance practice. Their collaboration results in a delightful transparency, vitality, and richness of sound, which has garnered acclaim around the world. The musicians participate on many levels, whether as core members, soloists, or contributors to the exceptionally creative programming ideas that bring Tafelmusik concerts to life and make them fully relevant in a 21st-century context.
“This is music at its most powerful—a living force, not a museum piece.” —Toronto Star
