Marc Destrubé and the three Dutch masters of the period instrument revival who will join him for this recital of chamber music by Telemann and C.P.E. Bach have been at the forefront of the international early music movement for over 30 years. All former instructors of our long-running Summer Baroque Instrumental Course at UBC, these four great artists have played pivotal roles in inspiring and teaching the next generation of Early Music artists. They have also individually enjoyed long and illustrious careers as soloists, chamber musicians and musical leaders all over the world – we could not imagine programming EMV’s 50th anniversary without them. This programme will feature a selection of highly expressive chamber music from the late 18th century repertoire known as the Style Galant.
