Baroque 2000's next concert is at 1130 on Sunday April 2 at the Church of the Monastery Mariannhill. The programme breaks new ground for the ensemble and includes Telemann's Fantasia for solo violin, which will be played by Refiloe Olifant, and the same composer's Concerto for four unaccompanied violins TWV 203, played by Rlitza Matcheva, Petya Koleva, Refiloe Olifant and Roberto Palma. In 'Conclusion', also by Telemann, for strings, oboe and trumpet, the soloists are Maggie Deppe and Michel Schneuwly.
The main work is Bach's secular cantata Weichet nur,betrübte Schatten (Yield now, troubling shadows), BWV 202. The soprano Vanessa Tait Jones is the soloist. Known as the Wedding Cantata, it may have been composed for Bach's own to his second wife.
There are also two pieces by Handel: the Concerto Grosso op6 no 3, and the Concerto a Quattro no 2 in D.
Tickets are R150 at the door, and there is free and safe parking.
The monastery Tea Garden will be open before and after the concert.
