Notes in MidWinter : Brooklyn Baroque
Brooklyn Baroque opens the 2012 Notes in MidWinter concert series with a program entitled "Telemann's Trip to Paris in 1738." Sunday's concert will include works by Boismortier, Couperin, Leclair, and Telemann. Admission is free, but space is limited; early arrival is recommended.
The Brooklyn Baroque trio debuted in the fall of 2000, when cellist David Bakamjian joined the long-standing duo of Baroque flutist Andrew Bolotowsky and harpsichordist Rebecca Pechefsky. Since then, the group has performed frequently in the New York area and has been invited to play in other states across the country.
The trio is the ensemble-in-residence at the eighteenth-century Morris-Jumel Mansion, where it performs in a yearly series.
Brooklyn Baroque specializes in the music of Bach and his contemporaries, but its concerts often range further back into the seventeenth century or as far forward as Beethoven.
The Notes in MidWinter concert series is sponsored by the Music Committee of the Friends of the Library, chaired by Wendy Kerner Lucas.
