Concert #1
Navré de ton dart with Ensemble Anima

Friday September 23, 2022, 7:30 p.m. 

Brunton Auditorium, Sackville NB

Also available: Home Streaming

Death, you have wounded with your arrow (navré de ton dart) the father of joy . So begins Johannes Ockeghems lamentation for Burgundian composer Gilles Binchois. 
This sense of death as something that arrives to us from beyond ourselves is at least as old as the art of archery, which gives it its metaphor. We reach for the same image when we talk about love: Ay me, the fatal arrow / That drives ev'n to the marrow, / Cupid from out his quiver / Hath pluckd and piercd my liver (thus Thomas Morley).
The arrows of love and death can arrive with catastrophic power  but they also have the power to release us from the bonds of a situation that has become untenable: Love, deliver me from out of the bonds of Death, someone might pray; or, one the other hand, Death, deliver me from out of the bonds of love.

Using songs of Gilles Binchois and John Bedyngham, with their associated parody Masses  and new adaptations of poetry by Christine de Pizan  this program tells a late-medieval transition story, which is also a story of the progress of love, both sacred and profane.

French chamber music from the early 18th century
Works by Campra, Granval, Hotteterre, Jacquet de La Guerre, and Boismortier

As well as being obsessed with his own glory, Louis XIV had three other passions: women, buildings, and music. During his seemingly interminable reignit lasted almost 65 yearsthe first two passions faded; the first because of the spirit of devotion imposed on the court by Mme de Maintenon, his morganatic wife, the second because of the economic troubles afflicting the kingdom. Music, however, which he had studied in his youth, remained a consolation until his death. He liked his musicians, conversed freely with them, and chose them with care. Couperin wrote his Concerts royaux for Louis; Marais was his favorite gambist; and Élisabeth
Jacquet enjoyed his continuing support ever since, as a child prodigy, she wrote her first compositions.

Concert #3
Quill and Bow

Mélisande McNabney, harpsichord and Elinor Frey, cello

Sunday September 25, 2022, 7:30 p.m. 

Brunton Auditorium, Sackville NB

The harpsichord and violoncello are old friends. Since the early Baroque period, they form the core of the continuo group, playing the bass line together and providing a continuous foundation to all ensemble music. In this recital, we are taken on a musical journey highlighting the incredible virtuosity and expressive power of these two instruments in both duo and solo playing. The harpsichords brilliant and harmonious sound created by the quills plucking its strings comes together with the singing tone of the cellos bowed strings for a musical feast featuring monuments of the repertoire alongside lesser-known gems. 
The journey starts in France with Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, Jean Baur, Jean-Philippe Rameau, and François Couperin. We then travel to Germany with Johann Sebastian Bach before finishing our exploration in Italy with Giuseppe Clemente DallAbaco and Antonio Vivaldi.
