SALISH SEA
EARLY MUSIC FESTIVAL
~ Period Instrument chamber music from six centuries around the Salish Sea ~


Review: Vancouver Classical Music, January 11, 2015, Vancouver, BC

"A LOVELY BAROQUE DIVERTISSEMENT FROM BROTHERTON, COHAN AND STUBBS"

"A remarkably intimate and refreshing experience. •  The two Handel arias are both rejuvenating pieces and I thought the soprano brought a particularly fresh radiance to them. • There was joy and love aplenty here, quite irresistible in its sense of innocence and spontaneity. • ...let me acknowledge, first off, just how well the underpinning of Cohan and Stubbs brought out the variety and motion of this work. • Jeffrey Cohan has such quickness and dynamic range, such a keen control of accents, and such mastery at floating the soft limpid phrase that the combination with Stephen Stubbs’ own brand of structural solidity and insight gave us something pretty special indeed. • There should be more late afternoon concerts of this type.  They are such a refreshing ‘time out’ from the rest of your schedule, especially when they involve artistry like this."

The Salish Sea Early Music Festival evolved from Concert Spirituel, which since the early 1980s in Seattle and Chicago has featured harpsichordists Elisabeth Wright, George Shangrow, David Schrader and John Whitelaw (Belgium), violinists Stanley Ritchie and Jorg Michael Schwarz, lutenists Stephen Stubbs and John Schneiderman, gambists Susan Napper and Mary Springfels and cellist Elaine Scott Banks. Unpublished works from the Library of Congress and other libraries and unusual instruments and instrumental combinations that were familiar in earlier times are given particular attention. From 1725 until 1790, the Concert Spirituel in Paris offered outstanding sacred, orchestral and chamber music performances presented by the leading instrumentalists and composers of Europe, often featuring the most innovative new music of the day. In this spirit we are excited to present the fifth annual Salish Sea Early Music Festival.
