Sunday Matinee Classical Music Concert featuring The WolfGang EnsembleName: Sunday Matinee Classical Music Concert featuring The WolfGang EnsembleDate: June 5, 2022Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM CDTEvent Description:
The WolfGang performs music from the era of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Its repertory includes works from the mid 18th century when the sons of J.S. Bach were active up to the music of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven and their contemporaries. Playing on musical instruments of the type that were used during Mozart’s life and in a style that “fits” that era, The WolfGang has been performing, recording, and touring for over 22 years. We play on classical era flute, strings, and keyboard. Like Mozart, who often played on a Viennese fortepiano by Johann Andreas Stein, Gail Olszewski, keyboardist for The WolfGang, plays a copy of a Stein fortepiano. Our three string players use violin, viola, violoncello and bows which are either from the 18th century or are carefully modeled after 18th century instruments. Flutist Paul Jacobson plays on modern replicas of flutes made by some of the great woodwind makers of the late 18th century.
