Telemann 250th Anniversary Programme, including Telemann’s original Trio Sonatas for recorder with treble viol, and recorder with bass viol.
Da Camera is an exciting and versatile ensemble, crossing the line between ‘early’, ‘folk’ and ‘contemporary’ music. Their programmes range in repertoire from the passamezzi of the 15th century, via traditional Celtic and English music, through the baroque, to newly-commissioned works. Three new works have been commissioned by them to date.
All members of the recorder family feature alongside
many different sizes of viol, with harpsichord or organ accompaniment.
Da Camera has performed to great acclaim at London’s Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, Royal Albert Hall, for the BBC on many occasions, at many major festivals around the UK – including Totnes Early Music Society, Finchcocks’ Festival, Stour Festival, Chester Summer Music Festival and Dartington International Summer Festival – and many other venues.
Emma, Susanna and Steven are all in demand as
freelance musicians with many of the UK’s leading period groups and teach on various music courses and summer schools.
Da Camera has given numerous educational performances and workshops for school children, as well as children and adults in hospital and with learning disabilities.
These are programmed alongside their concerts or have been part of the Live Music Now! Scheme. This is an important aspect of their work.
‘A Celtic Celebration’, Da Camera’s first CD of Scottish and Irish Baroque and Traditional music, received widespread interest and praise. This is available from DevineMusic.
Da Camera will be releasing a new CD of Telemann’s original trio sonatas for recorder and treble viol, recorder and bass viol, as well as others arranged by them, ready for Telemann’s 250th anniversary year in 2017.
