Musica Alta Ripa goes baroque

Musica Alta Ripa Goes Baroque features violinist Anne Röhrig and harpsichordist Bernward Lohr, two internationally renowned musicians who come from Hannover in Germany to join flutist Jeffrey Cohan for a program of baroque chamber music on Wednesday, March 8 at 6 p.m. at the Orcas Adventist Fellowship Church in Eastsound. Lohr is director of Hanover’s Musica Alta Ripa, one of Germany’s most active period instrument ensembles. Baroque violinist Röhrig leads the Hannoversche Hofkapelle (the “Hanover Court Orchestra”), another of Europe’s premier baroque orchestras. With baroque flutist Cohan they will present 18th-century French, Italian and German trio sonatas and solos by composers Johann Sebastian Bach, Archangelo Corelli, Andre Chéron, Louis-Antoine Dornel, Georg Philipp Telemann and Johann Christian Bach.
