Pan Harmonia and Asheville Baroque Concerts usher in spring with Bountiful Baroque: A Mini-Festival of German Gems, two exciting programs of concertos by GP Telemann and JS Bach featuring soloists Frances Blaker, recorder virtuoso from the San Francisco Bay Area, ABCs’ Gail Ann Schroeder, viola da gamba, and Pan Harmonia’s Kate Steinbeck, flute. The weekend festival marks the groups’ first collaboration with the North Carolina Baroque Orchestra in a double celebration of Pan Harmonia’s 20th season and Asheville Baroque Concerts’ 5th year of offering concerts. North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, based in the Triangle, is an acclaimed period instrument ensemble co-founded by sisters Frances Blaker and Barbara Blaker Krumdieck, Baroque cellist. The festival chamber ensemble also features the artistry of David Wilson and Jeanne Johnson, violins; Janelle Davis, viola; Phil Spray, violone, and Barbara Weiss, harpsichord. The Friday evening concert at 7:30 pm is a stunning all Telemann offering which includes his Suite in D Major for Viola da gamba and Strings, and the Double Concerto in A Minor for Recorder and Viola da gamba. Sunday’s afternoon concert at 3 pm will present works by Bach and Telemann, including Bach’s iconic Overture Suite in B minor for flute and strings, and Telemann’s stirring Concerto in E minor for recorder and flute. Both concerts take place at Biltmore United Methodist Church, 376 Hendersonville Road, Asheville.
