On November 30 at Toronto’s Heliconian Hall, Alison Melville and Julia Seager-Scott will present BORDER CROSSINGS, an evening of music of traditional and Baroque origins performed on the clarsach (17th-century Scottish traditional harp), Baroque triple harp, recorders, Baroque flute, and kantele (traditional Finnish dulcimer).
Drawing mostly from Irish, Scottish, English and Italian traditions, the program includes 18th-century music by the Irish harper Turlough O’Carolan and Scotland’s tune collector James Oswald, Baroque sonatas by Arcangelo Corelliand Antonio Vivaldi, grounds from The Division Flute, and a small surprise or two.
For those of us who live in the northern part of our hemisphere, November’s lengthening nights are a reminder that winter is undoubtedly on its way; but a darkened evening is also a perfect time to bask in music’s shimmering gifts.
Sounds and music not to be missed – we hope you’ll join us!
