Just Strings - Meet Vivaldi
Edmonton Classical Guitar Society is proud to collaborate with Early Music Alberta and the Alberta String Association to bring one of the most promising recitals of the year featuring intimate and delightfully played sonatas and concertos composed by Antonio Lucio Vivaldi. Starring the concerts we have highly virtuoso professionals such as Michelle Carreca (from the Bellini Conservatory Palermo Italy) on the archlute playing the G minor lute sonata, and Josephine Van Lier playing the baroque cello, plus the debut of the Edmonton Classical Guitar Quartet playing a great arrangement of the G major double mandolin concerto. Other local musicians will be playing works on violin and lute as well.
The concert, apart from being the first collaboration effort between these three long standing Edmonton based music associations, is a fundraising activity for the ASA 2018 string competition. Two recitals with exactly the same program are schedule, one in Edmonton on September 16th in the Fine Arts Building, room 2-7 at 7pm, and one in Burman University, Lacombe September 17th at the same time.
