INSIDER FACTS

BAROQUE

The Baroque period refers to an era that started around 1600 and ended around 1750, and included composers who pioneered new styles like the concerto and the sonata.

Bach, Vivaldi and Handel are three of the most renowned composers of the Baroque - and any - era.
 

 

DANCE PARTY

Ivars Taurins is one of Canada’s most renowned specialists in performing Baroque music in its original style. This is music of the dance, and Ivars is the perfect person to bring it to life. After all, he describes himself as coming from the Fred Astaire School of Conducting.

Ivars Taurins is one of my mentors, one of those people who I find myself quoting often when sharing a musical concept with other listeners. He is a deep well of knowledge that brings this style of music straight off the page and LEAVES LISTENERS WITH ENORMOUS SMILES.

Rosemary Thomson

Anyone who knows Taurins knows that his WIT AND WISDOM – his metaphors and ideas and thoughts about music and art and society – are renowned.
