Program Notes

In 1723 J. S. Bach became Kantor (Music Director and Teacher) at the St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, for which he wrote most of his sacred cantatas and choral works. In 1729 he began directing Leipzig’s Collegium Musicum, a society of university students, interested amateurs, and a few professional musicians who met on Friday evenings to play secular music at Zimmermann’s coffee-house, indoors in cold weather or in the outdoor garden during the summer. Bach supplied most of the music for these gatherings, including the A Major Violin Concerto, for which he most likely performed the solo part.

Program Notes

For most of his professional life, Antonio Vivaldi taught music at Venice’s Ospedale della Pietà, a girls’ boarding school, where he wrote a number of instrumental concertos for the school’s gifted students. The Flute Concerto in D, known as “Il gardellino” (The Goldfinch”) was published in 1728.

Carol Codrescu specializes in historical performance practice on period flutes. She holds a BM (flute performance) from Baylor University, studying with Helen Ann Shanley; a MM (Early Music Performance, baroque flute) from New England Conservatory, studying with Peter Bloom; and a Certificate of Advanced Study (baroque and keyed flutes) from London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama, studying with Stephen Preston. Ms. Codrescu was a semi-finalist in the 1998 National Flute Association Baroque Flute Artist Competition, and was invited to perform at the 2001 and 2007 NFA Conventions on concerts of baroque chamber music. She has also served as tape judge for the NFA Baroque Flute Masterclass, Baroque Flute Artists Competition, and the Collegiate Flute Choir Competition. Ms. Codrescu teaches flute and recorder privately and at Parlando School for the Musical Arts in Boulder. She has played principal flute with the Broomfield Symphony Orchestra since 2014.
