St. Philip’s In The Hills Episcopal Church, 4440 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson, Arizona
The James R. Anthony Memorial Concert
The Aulos Ensemble has been a pre-eminent force in early music since its founding by five Juilliard graduates in 1973. A favorite of AEMS’s audiences, these outstanding musicians return to Tucson with a program using London and Paris as backdrops to the music of Purcell, Handel, Couperin and Rameau.
Flutist Christopher Krueger, oboist Marc Schachman, violinist Linda Quan, cellist Myron Lutzke, and harpsichordist Arthur Haas are among the world’s leading performers on baroque instruments today. As teachers at leading universities, conservatories and festivals, they are responsible for training the current generation of America’s early music players.
“The players of New York’s Aulos Ensemble were fluid singers all, their lines never losing clarity or shape, always sounding flexible and spontaneous. This was authentic Baroque performance at its best.”
–The New York Times
“Just like its Dickensian namesake, The Aulos Ensemble’s concert..., titled “A Tale of Two Cities” rolled out London and Paris as backdrops for some of the most dramatic human expression the world has known. Performed by some of the finest period-instrument players around...[they] opened the season with interpretations of utmost refinement.”
