Love & Celebrations with Arioso Chamber Ensemble

concert flyerI’ve been busy preparing a beautiful program of Baroque music for upcoming concerts by Arioso Chamber Ensemble in Sandgate, Caloundra and Noosaville. The theme “Love & Celebrations” is inspired by the Celebration by 4mbs-FM of their 25th anniversary, since this year our concerts will be part of the 4mbs Classic FM Festival of Classics. We traverse the many guises of love in arias by G.Caccini, C. Monteverdi, and JS Bach, and¬†included works by composers with significant anniversaries in 2018 -¬† F.Couperin, and E. Barbello. Who’s Barbello you may ask? He was a Neapolitan violinist, who also wrote several works for mandolin. His music was included in a major 18th c. collection of violin music, Cartier’s “L’Art du violon”, possibly because he gave precise indications for bowing, so the “gentleman” performers of the day could learn to play any music with elegance. So, there is some well-known music, such as Bach’s “Bist di bei mir”, and “Jesu Joy”, sung by the wonderful Judit Molnar, and some charming but unknown music. So if you’re curious, come along to one of our concerts. You can book online at
