About this Event

Can you tell Bach from Mozart? What makes Baroque music so timeless and enduring? Join us to explore the music of this era and find out why it was so revolutionary as compared with the Renaissance style that came before it. By the end of this talk you will be able to pick out counterpoint, melody, basso continuo, harmony, and other key characteristics of Baroque music. We will listen to Vivaldi's famous Four Seasons; you might have heard this piece a hundred times, but you won't believe what you've missed! See a 300-year-old cello up close, and hear the softer, more nuanced sound it makes as compared with a modern cello. A lively lecture with lots of musical excerpts and demonstrations. No prior musical knowledge is necessary to participate.

Olivier Henchiri is the founder and artistic director of the Ottawa Baroque Consort, a professional orchestra on period instruments. A master’s recipient from uOttawa and graduate of the Conservatory of Music in Gatineau and the Tafelmusik Institute, Olivier specializes in Baroque music and historical performance practices. He has performed cello in many chamber ensembles, orchestras and festivals in Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto. He has written several concert-plays on Baroque-era characters and stories performed with live orchestra, and he frequently delivers masterclasses, workshops, and talks on Baroque music.
