â€śOver the last decade Karina Gauvin has proved herself one of the most delightful of Baroque sopranos.â€ť - Gramophone
One of the worldâ€™s great interpreters of Handel, and long-time Tafelmusik collaborator, Karina GauvinÂ joins us for this concert showcasing the role of the baroque diva. She performs dramatic and compelling opera arias by Handel, including Alcinaâ€™s â€śAh! Mio cor,â€ť as well as a stunning motet by Vivaldi.
Guest directorÂ Rodolfo Richter returns to lead his second concert of the season. His â€śnotably smooth, glowing toneâ€ť (Concerto.net) takes centre stage in Telemannâ€™s humorous Concerto in A Major â€śThe Frog.â€ť The program also includes a world premiere by Canadian composer Colin Labadie, commissioned as part of this yearâ€™s Canada 150 celebrations.
All ticket holders are invited to attend our free Pre-Concert Chats at Koerner Hall. Join us one hour before each performance to listen to Ann Monoyios discuss various aspects of the concert.
