MIDDLETOWN — The Greater Middletown Concert Association will present later this month a performance by the Ensemble Chaconne, “The Glorious Ones — Treasures by the Late Baroque Masters.”
The group is composed of Peter H. Bloom on baroque flute, Carol Lewis playing viola da gamba and Olav Chris Henriksen on baroque lute, according to a press release.
It will take place May 22 at the new, state-of-the art Beman Middle School auditorium at 1 Wilderman’s Way.
The Boston-based group will “transport the audience to the salons and palaces of 18th-century Europe,” the news release said. The concert will feature masterpieces by J.S. Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Telemann, and other leading composers of the baroque era, performed on historical instruments.
Founded in 1985, Ensemble Chaconne is celebrating its 36th season, the statement said. The group tours in the United States and abroad. “Ensemble Chaconne, both in its individuals and together, is a powerhouse of great playing,” according to the Classical Voice of North Carolina.
It has performed for The National Gallery in London, Bach Festival Society of Winter Park Florida, National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Connecticut Early Music Festival, Edison Theatre in St Louis, Yale Center for British Art, Jordan Hall in Boston, Spivey Hall in Atlanta, Stamford Friends of Music in New York, Morton Arboretum Chamber Series in Chicago and other venues.
Bloom performs with esteemed artists, including Ensemble Aubade, the Karl Henning Ensemble, Modernistics, Fortunato Ensemble and Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, the news release said.
Henriksen, acclaimed in Europe and North America as a soloist on lute, theorbo and early guitars, is also a much sought-after ensemble player, performing and recording with the Boston Camerata, Handel & Haydn Society, Waverly Consort, and Chanticleer, among others.
His solo recordings are on Centaur and Museum Music. He has also recorded for Nonesuch, Erato, Pro Musica, Telarc and Decca. He has lectured at Harvard University, Northeastern University, the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City and elsewhere.
Lewis has demonstrated her “virtuosity and versatility” as a soloist in the United States and abroad, and has toured internationally with Hespèrion, Boston Camerata, Capriccio Stravagante and other noted ensembles. She appeared recently with Boston Camerata at The Cloisters in New York and Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, with Dunya at College of the Holy Cross, and Cappella Clausura in the Boston area.
She has recorded on Astrée, EMI, Lyrichord, Harmonia Mundi, Nonesuch, and other labels, and has taught at Festival dei Saraceni in Pamparato, Italy; Milano Civica Scuola di Musica, also in Italy; New England Conservatory of Music, Amherst Early Music and elsewhere.
