Our opening concert for the 2014 Vancouver Early Music Festival is a rare recital by world-renowned keyboardist Colin Tilney. Turning 80 this year, Colin is a giant in early music: one of the first musicians to bring historically-informed performance to the general concertgoer’s awareness, and one of the few still actively performing today. He’ll perform Quinque by the South African lesbian composer Priaulx Rainier, Bach’s 6th English Suite, and elegant works by 18th-century French clavecinistes.
