Winter Baroque ‘22: a portfolio

Aldo’s armory

The feedback from NCMF Winter Baroque has been rolling in and is overwhelmingly positive. What a concert it was! At one point it looked like smoke was coming out of Aldo’s recorder.

Sarah, on violin, was a kind of live coal of musical energy in the center of the group.

John, on harpsichord, was a wonderful grounding presence and all-around mensch.

And on keyboards….

Finally, Eliana held the hall under her spell for twenty-five minutes with a big Bach suite.

Of course I am going to say that

It is something for these pros to come together and assemble a terrific concert on a few hours of rehearsal. We train for it, but it still feels like a kind of rare alchemy to pull this off. Watching from outside it seems like a bit of a miracle. (This is a shameless plug for attending the open rehearsals during the summer festival.)

Rehearsing in St. Anna’s Chapel

There wasn’t an empty pew and I saw only smiles as people filtered out. Thank you for making last year happen.

I’m still coming down from the summer– Schoenberg, Shostakovich, “The Jury,” everything and everyone who turned up

By all accounts, I think I can report that summer 2023, our twenty-second season, was a smashing success.
