Colin Tilney Celebrates LXXX @ The Queer Arts Festival
Presented in partnership with the Vancouver Early Music Festival

A giant among the first generation of musicians who brought the idea of historically informed performance to the general concertgoer, world-renowned keyboardist Colin Tilney turned 80 this year. Join us as we celebrate his legacy with a solo harpsichord recital.

Tilney's wide repertoire stretches from the English virginalists through Mozart to Louis Andriessen. He plays the fortepiano and clavichord in addition to his main instrument, the harpsichord, and has made a single organ recording, Elizabethan music on a seventeenth-century chamber organ. In his concerts and recordings he tries as far as possible to use historical instruments or modern replicas in an attempt to match the music with the sounds the composers heard as they wrote.

Colin Tilney's program will include Bach's monumental sixth English Suite; a prelude and dances by Louis Couperin, the uncle of Fran├žois; five sonatas by Scarlatti; and Quinque by South African lesbian composer Priaulx Rainier (1903-1986).

Come early, share a drink among friends, and take in QAF's visual arts exhibitions. Bar opens at 6:00 pm.
