With our 10th anniversary approaching, Rezonance is raising funds to record a full-length album, “Airs for the Seasons.” Funds will be used for all aspects of the recording process, including venue rental, harpsichord moving, audio engineering and mixing, marketing, packaging, and more. Our fundraising goal is $5000, although this only represents a fraction of the cost of making an album. Remaining funds will go to our regular operating costs.
Rezonance has provided beautiful renditions of early music to the community for years. Even throughout the pandemic, we have continued to make music. This could not have been done without YOUR help. As we recover from the pandemic, donations are more important than ever. Please consider offering some of your Black Friday savings in support of early music.
You can donate through CanadaHelps to our general operating costs/current season OR to our exciting upcoming full-length CD.
The Art of Harmony
Rezonance with Guest Artist JULIA WEDMAN!
Live and In-Person!
Sunday, April 10, 3:30PM
St. David's Anglican Church
49 Donlands Ave., Toronto
Virtuoso violin music of 17th-century Austria and Germany.
Guest soloist Julia Wedman gives us a glimpse into some of her favourite music, bringing you works that transport the listener far beyond the everyday. In The Art of Harmony, Rezonance presents composers whose creativity stretched the limits of both the instrument and the compositional practices of the time. These rarely performed pieces are highly demanding for the performers and absolutely thrilling for the listener. Biber’s extraordinary Harmonia Artificiosa-Ariosa (loosely translated as “airs of artistic harmony”) sonatas for two violins explore a rich and unusual palette of sounds. Rounding out the program is a solo sonata by Biber, as well as works by Schmelzer, Rosenmüller, and Bach. This programme is a perfect match for Wedman, whose playing has been described as “extraordinarily intuitive” and “highly communicative".
