Saturday, September 8 2018, internationally renowned conductor, composer and recorder/traverso virtuoso Matthias Maute will be in San Jose (CA) bringing The American Recorder Rally to the San Francisco Bay Area. In association with The American Recorder Society, Mr. Maute’s project is being produced in recorder communities around the country. The project kicked off in in Seattle and Portland this March. Participants at these events enthusiastically reported that they loved performing with such a renowned artist and the intensity of the event. Both concerts were well received by the audiences.
In this concert, Telemann: Tweets and Twitters, the recorder is featured in all its splendor: the recorder orchestra delves into the consort music of the 17th century and accompanies Mr. Maute during the contemporary concerto that he composed specifically for the Rally. The solo repertoire is intended to showcase the extravagant beauty and virtuosity of our instrument even when alone on the stage.
