An entertaining evening to relish some of Telemann’s most beloved chamber music. Georg Philipp Telemann’s ‘Paris Quartets’ are considered to be some of the finest chamber works ever written. Three of these gems will feature in this concert, performed by five of North America’s outstanding baroque musicians: viola da gambists Kenneth Slowik and Natalie Mackie, Soile Stratkauskas (flute), Michael Jarvis (harpsichord), and Festival Artistic Director Marc Destrubé (violin).
