Two Ensembles. Two starkly different genres. In this remarkable project, a Baroque ensemble led by JUNO Award-winning harpsichordist/chamber organist Alexander Weimann and a brilliant jazz septet led by trumpeter/composer Alan Matheson explore threads running from the 1600’s through today’s creative jazz scene. Bringing together disparate musical communities, the two groups will perform works from their respective fields as well as pieces written for the “common ground” of both. In this timeless meeting place, the long melodic lines of Ellington and Strayhorn echo Handel and Bach, while the endlessly creative practice of “theme and variation" is a keystone of jazz improvisation, of the Baroque and, one could argue, of life.
