Three distinguished guest artists will join Simon’s Rock music faculty members Anne Legêne and Larry Wallach for a free concert of Baroque Chamber Music on Sunday, November 5 at 3 p.m. The concert will be held in the Kellogg Music Center. The program is free and open to the public; further information is available at 413-528-7212. Legene, Wallach and guests will perform music by Bach and Telemann on period instruments. The five-member ensemble of recorder, violin, viola da gamba, cello and harpsichord will collaborate in the final work on the program, a “Paris” quartet by Bach’s distinguished colleague Georg Philip Telemann. Another trio of Telemann’s along with Bach’s great flute sonata in B minor and works by Marias and Schenk will round out the program. The guests include recorder virtuosa Eva Legêne, who is a professor of music in the Early Music Institute at Indiana University; baroque violinist Vita Wallace, member of the Orfeo Duo, ARTEK Ensemble, and numerous other New York-based groups; and Lucy Bardo, viola da gamba player familiar to local audiences through her work with the New York Consort of Viols, Calliope, and the Berkshire Bach Society. Anne Legêne leads orchestras at the Hawthorne Valley School and Simon’s Rock College, and is a busy teacher of cello in the Berkshires. Larry Wallach is a keyboard player, composer, and the Livingston Hall Chair in Music at the college. Eva Legêne studied recorder with Frans Brüggen, taught at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam, at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, and in master classes in Europe and the United States. She has performed with many early music luminaries such as Wieland Kuijken, Hopkins Smith, Bruce Dickey, Colin Tilney, and the Boston Museum Trio. She was a member of the Brüggen Consort and is currently a member of the Copenhagen-based Rosenborg Trio. Ms. Legêne is a performer at recorder and early music festivals in Europe, the United States, and Australia. She has recorded for the Telefunken, Denon, Rondo and Focus labels. Vita Wallace is known as a powerful, sensitive, and versatile musician. She plays music of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries on a baroque violin with replicas of early bows. She won the Felix Salzer Award at the Mannes College of Music, where she studied with Felix Galimir. She has performed and recorded extensively as violinist of the Orfeo Duo, with which she also teaches improvisation and plays the piano in four-hand repertoire. The Duo's latest CD, described as "daring and fresh" by the National Post, features the complete Schumann sonatas on period instruments, on the unedited Unacorda label. Lucy Bardo is a founding member of the renaissance band Calliope and is also a long time member of the New York Consort of Viols. Over the years she has performed with many orchestras and chamber music ensembles, including the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera. In the Berkshires where she now lives, she plays frequently with the Berkshire Bach Society, the Columbia Festival Orchestra, and for the Baroque Foundation Concerts. Her recording credits include Nonesuch, Columbia, Vanguard, Musical Heritage, Summit and Telarc. She is the editor of the J.S. Bach Art of the Fugue for viols.
