Heliand Consort, Chamber Music Ensemble
May 10 , 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Heliand Consort’s program, “Echoes of Springtime Past – Chamber Music for Winds and Piano,” features early works by Glinka and Poulenc, evoking the youthful spirit of spring.
Heliand Consort is a dynamic group of virtuoso musicians who perform engaging classical music, from the baroque era through 20th century and contemporary repertoire. The core ensemble includes flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and piano. Each season they appear in a variety of configurations for winds and piano, and frequently feature guest artists.
Hailed for their passionate performances of classical music, Heliand Consort has appeared live on VPR Classical and WGDR, given interviews on WCVT, and has twice been selected as a Pick of the Week by Seven Days. The Times-Argus described their recent piano sextet performance as “substantial and musically rewarding.”
‘Heliand’ is Old Saxon for healing power; helianthus means sunflower. Heliand Consort strives to bring light, joy and healing to the lives of their listeners, through the visceral experience of hearing great, live music.
