THE WOLFGANG, with Erika Ternes

Sat. May 24, 7:30 PM  -  Arrowhead Center for the Arts (51 W. 5th St. Grand Marais)

THE WOLFGANG, an 18th century style sextet, was founded in 1996 in the Twin Cities, for the exploration of chamber music from the time of J.S. Bach's sons up to the time of Beethoven and Schubert. The six accomplished musicians of The WolfGang — LAURA HANDLER, GAIL OLSZEWSKI, JENNIFER KALIKA, MARIE SORLIE, STANLEY KING, and PAUL JACOBSON — have performed with celebrated historical instrument ensembles throughout the U.S. and abroad. Their goal: to make 18th century music as engaging, novel, and enjoyable today as it was when it first leaped off the barely dry manuscripts of its day.

At the heart of The WolfGang's repertory stands the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. For its performance with NSMA, the ensemble presents three of Mozart's masterpieces: an opera, a motet for soprano and orchestra, and a fantasy for fortepiano alone. The opera, THE MAGIC FLUTE, is a transcription for chamber ensemble arranged by Johann Wendt, a contemporary of Mozart. The motet, EXSULTATE, JUBLIATE, has been newly transcribed for The WolfGang and soprano soloist by the group's flutist, Paul Jacobson. For the premiere of this new transcription, The WolfGang is joined by Grand Marais artist ERIKA TERNES, a remarkable soprano and violinist.
