Tempesta di Mare Chamber Players


Gwyn Roberts, recorder; Emlyn Ngai  & Karina Fox, violin; Lisa Terry, cello; Adam Pearl, harpsichord and Richard Stone, lute

“The concert provided another example of the scholarship, musical imagination, and performing skill that supports the best early music performances. The result was a parade of variety and inventiveness that showcased the talents of Tempesta di Mare’s leading performers.” — Broad Street Review

The Chamber Players return in February in Bach Trio Sonatas, Tempesta’s own colorful settings of the six sonatas for organ re-imagined for chamber ensemble. By treating the sonatas as conversational chamber music for varying forces of multiple players rather than as monologues for a single performer, these pieces show off music that is at once rich, deep, wicked, jaunty, impish, profound, hard-rocking and so much more.

The performances of this program are supported by the E. Nakamichi Foundation.

We will record this program for a 2013 release on Chandos Records.
