The Listening Club: Blurring the Boundaries
Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir

The Memorial Room, Trinity-St. Paul's Centre (427 Bloor St. West)

Think you know everything about baroque music? Delve a little deeper into baroque music with this special series moderated by BBC Radio host and musicologist Dr. Hannah French, with violist Patrick Jordan.

We like history to be neat and tidy. The Renaissance. The Baroque Period. The Classical Era. All nice and identifiable. But in reality, it’s of course a wonderful evolving history of fits and starts. In this last listening club we look at composers who ‘sit outside the box’, challenging our ears to be surprised by their innovations or recognize their heritage – and listening to the implications for performers today.
