Classics the Digital Way

Atlantic Sinfonia Winds presents music for wind sextet – 2 clarinets, 2 French horns and 2 bassoons from both well-known classical music composers and more obscure ones. The great Beethoven is represented by his Sextet Op.71 which displays his melodic invention and his light-hearted side. W.A. Mozart’s ability to create timeless melodies is evident in three arias from the opera ‘Magic Flute’ arranged by the bassoonist, Stumpf. And finally, a fresh and vibrant and sometimes flashy romp through the Bohemian countryside by the composer Druschetsky, a prolific writer of music for winds and an oboist himself.

Strings of Spring

Atlantic Sinfonia and Fredericton Symphony Orchestra present a concert to celebrate the coming of spring. String orchestra favourites will be presented by each group from well-known classical composers as well as Fredericton’s own Janis Kalnins.

Over the centuries, composers have looked to nature for musical inspiration. Rivers, mountains, valleys, and more have been popular themes composers use in their music. Through the music of Antonin Dvorak and Edward McDowell, trees and woodlands will be explored in this performance. Atlantic Sinfonia has also commissioned a new piece from composer Michael Miller for the occasion.

Tickets available online and at the door.

Musical Ventures presents Winds of Moravia Tour

Featuring Atlantic Sinfonia Wind Octet (two french horns, two oboes, two bassoons, and two clarinets in the classical tradition)

In the late 18th century talented instrumentalists and composers from Moravia (in the present Czech Republic) flooded the musical capital of Vienna stocking their musical ensembles and contributing to the classical style in vogue at that time. A number of composers, now overshadowed by the likes of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven, were both prolific and popular in their day. We will highlight the music of some of these forgotten, yet influential musicians.

Join us in February and March to hear works by Mysliveček, Krommer, Streicher, and Wranitzky.

The National Film Board of Canada supported some talented Canadian composers from its inception in 1939 to the middle 1970s. The music of these talented individuals is not always heard, especially the music they wrote that was not destined for a film.

The Atlantic Sinfonia is pleased to present a concert that celebrates the music of some of Canada’s early composers of music for film. These include Robert Fleming, Eldon Rathburn and Lou Applebaum. Their music is elegant, lively and descriptive whether it was music meant for a film or for the concert hall.
