Our evening consisted of an enchanting, classical, chamber music experience, with a nearly-full house at the Harris Theatre. This particular programme truly underscored the term "music to my ears", composed of a series of lyrical, fanciful violin & flute music, that was a sheer delight to the senses!
The reperitore, originally designed for audiences of the King of Prussia for Berlin's then Opera House, weaves enchanting, string orchestra, mellodic harmonies from the 17th & 18th centuries, including Bach, Quantz, Grand & Benda.
The concert features world-renowned, Emmanuel Pahud, Principal Flautist from the Berlin Philharmonic, accompanied by Les Violons du Roy, Chamber Orchestra from Canada, under the direction of Bernard Labadie, an internationally recognized expert on music from this period.
Emmanuel energetically enfused the program (and especially the finale) with playful, delicate, embellishments that brought the audience a smile with well-resounding laughter and warmth to make it a truly memorable and enjoyable experience for all!
