Music on Sunday is back this weekend with The Continuum Consort at TOSH.
The trio includes Emily Nagelbach on flute, Tatiana Kostour on violin and Douglas Hensley on guitar.
These highly-respected Victoria musicians will be bringing a wonderful program of exquisite music by W.A. Mozart and his lesser-known contemporaries Ferdinando Carulli, Filippo Gragnani and Joseph Kreutzer.
Also on the program is Les Folklores imaginaire by the French composer Jacques Bondon. The group’s repertoire spans a wide range from the 15th to the 21st centuries.
According Nagelbach’s bio on The Continuum Consort’s website, Nagelbach is the second flute/piccolo with the Vancouver Island Symphony and is acting head of the Winds and Brass department at the Victoria Conservatory of Music. As a freelance musician, she has performed with both the Vancouver and Victoria symphony orchestras. She has studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Wilfrid Laurier University and the University of British Columbia.
Kostour, a Moscow-born violinist, has performed with numerous symphonies in Ontario including the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, Brantford Symphony and the London Symphony. In 1991, Kostour graduated from the Kiev Conservatory of Music in the Ukraine.
Hensley has received degrees in guitar performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He is also on the faculty of the Victoria Conservatory of Music. Hensley also plays and teaches classical Persian instruments including tar, setar, santur and oud which he studied in California and Paris.
