Early Music Voices: Of Gods, Myths and Musicians!
Paul Luchkow, violin, and Michael Jarvis, harpsichord, present an evening of virtuoso 18th-century sonatas in a program including works by Telemann, Handel, and Biber (not Justin!) as well as selections from their new recording of sonatas by the French composer, Michel Corrette. Correttes Op. 25 collection offers wonderfully charming and playful musical depictions of stories on mythological themes.
Bio of the duo:
The LuchkowJarvis Duo was formed by Paul Luchkow and Michael Jarvis in 2007 to explore sonata repertoire for violin and keyboard, particularly that of the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods, on instruments of the time. In the following years, Paul and Michael have played numerous self-presented and invited concerts of music ranging from the Baroque era to the end of the 19th century, all on instruments appropriate to each historical period.
Since the duo's formation, Paul and Michael have presented seven annual series of concerts, performed in 'Pop-up' concerts in non-traditional venues, collaborated in music for theatre and have been guests of Vancouver New Music, Early Music Vancouver, the Early Music Society of the Islands (Victoria) and the Pacific Baroque Festival (Victoria).
In addition to these performances, Paul and Michael are sought after as clinicians performing and giving masterclasses in period-instrument performance at universities across western Canada, as well as frequently working with younger students and enthusiastic amateurs.
Their recording of sonatas for violin/viola and fortepiano of Johann Nepomuk Hummel was released on Marquis Classics in January 2012 and was nominated in the Classical Album of the Year category at the 2012 Western Canada Music Awards. A subsequent recording of Mozart sonatas was self-produced and released in the summer of 2013. A new recording of sonatas by Michele Corrette will be released in the Spring of 2017
