The Alberta Baroque Ensemble, in association with the Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies, presents Early Music from Vienna and Prague on Sunday, March 10, 2013, at 3 p.m. taking place at Robertson Wesley United Church (10209 123 St.).
Artistic Director Paul Schieman works annually with the Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies and finds music by baroque era composers with strong ties to this region and its fruitful history. This year, Schieman has found pieces from Austrian composers Georg Christoph Wagenseil, Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf, Charles Willibald Gluck and Czech composer Johann Baptist Georg Neruda.
Rounding out the Alberta Baroque Ensemble is Edmonton Symphony Principal Trumpeter Robin Doyon soloing along with Alberta Baroque Ensemble double-bassist Rob Aldridge.
January’s Bach & Vivaldi concert saw both an impressive turnout from concertgoers and an impressive performance of Vivaldi’s “Winter” giving further proof why the Alberta Baroque Ensemble remains a mainstay in Edmonton music and culture for the past 33 years as one of Canada’s leading professional chamber orchestras that perform music from the 17th and 18th centuries.
