Coach House, Green College, UBC, and livestreamed

Monday, December 12, 5-6:30 pm

Join us for the third Early Music Vancouver event at Green College this academic year. Early Music Vancouver presents music in ways that are attentive to and inspired by styles, conventions and conditions that existed when the music was first conceived.

For the past decade, cellist Elinor Frey has worked to make world premiere recordings and first editions of rarely-performed Baroque cello music. After spending a year in Italy on a Fulbright Fellowship, she began to integrate her musicological research on cello history and cello repertoire with her concert performances, recordings and publishing activities. Elinor’s Green College lecture will discuss the music that she has championed, especially cello works by Italian composers Angelo Maria Fiorè, Giuseppe Clemente Dall’Abaco, and Antoine Vandini, and French composer Jean Baur, as well as her process for contributing to her field.

Elinor Frey will be joined on the evening by a special guest, fellow musician Natalie Mackie, a member of Pacific Baroque Orchestra and the chamber ensemble “La Modestine.”
