The brilliant virtuoso violinist Chloe Kim is joined by Christina Mahler, former principal cellist of Tafelmusik, and Christina Hutten, well-known as organist and harpsichordist with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra and Early Music Vancouver.
The programme for the concert has been curated to highlight the wonderful work that the St James Music Academy does by providing free music education for children on the downtown Eastside, and how that parallels the work that composers would have done and benefitted from themselves in the 17th and 18th centuries :
Alessandro Stradella : Trio Sonata in D Minor
Arcangelo Corelli : Violin Sonata in F Major, Op 5 No 10
Dieterich Buxtehude : Ciacona in E Minor, BuxWV 160
Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber : Sonata No 5 in E Minor
Marin Marais : Sonnerie de Ste Geneviève du Mont-de-Paris
Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre : Violin Sonata No 1 in D Minor
Johann Jakob Froberger : Suite in C major, FbWV 612
Johann Sebastian Bach : Continuo Sonata in G Major, BWV 1021
It is particularly meaningful for this concert to take place at St James Church, home of the St James’ Music Academy, which provides free classical music education to the children and youth in the Downtown East Side — a non-profit music school that is committed to making a difference through the power and love of music.
