Hanover, Germany's vibrant early music scene will be reflected in this evening of lustrous baroque chamber music by Rameau, JS and CPE Bach, Marais and Leclair with our two special guests from Germany. Harpsichordist Bernward Lohr is director of Hanover's Musica Alta Ripa, one of Germany's most active period instrument ensembles, and baroque violinist Anne Röhrig is leader of the Hannoversche Hofkapelle, one of Germany's premier baroque orchestras.
Bernward Lohr and Anne Röhrig are both professors at music conservatories in both Hanover and Nuremburg, Germany. Their more than 30 recordings have garnered awards including the Diapason Dòr, the Cannes Classical Award, the German Recording Critics' Prize, and several times the Echo Klassik. Both were awarded the 2002 Music Award of Lower Saxony.
The program will include Jean-Philippe Rameau's Deuxième Concert from Pièces de Clavecin en Concert, selections from the Suite E Minor from Pièces en Trio by Marin Marais, Jean-Marie Leclair's Deuxième Récréation de Musique, Opus 8, the Sonata in G Major, BWV 1019 for obbligato harpsichord and violin by Johann Sebastian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's Trio Sonata in b minor, Wq. 143 and the G major trio sonata, BWV 1038 by Johann Sebastian Bach.
