    William Whitehead has gained a wide reputation for his engaging and inspiring interpretation of the organ repertoire. He has travelled widely giving concerts in Europe and the US. Recent venues include St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh, Westminster Cathedral and Berlin Dom. A recorded artist on dozens of discs, he is most recently to be heard as organ soloist in Handel’s Op 7 No 1 Organ Concerto with the Gabrieli Consort (Winged Lion label). His work as a continuo player brings him together with groups such as the Gabrieli Consort, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Dunedin Consort. As curator of the Orgelbüchlein project, William Whitehead is seeing through a large-scale project to 'complete' Bach's unfinished collection.

  • The WOnder Chamber Project

    Sunday, November 27, 4:


    Julie Andrijeski, violin

    Jaap ter Linden, viola da gamba

    Simon Martyn-Ellis, theorbo and guitar

    Joseph Gascho, harpsichord and organ



    Curiosities, natural wonders, antiquities, art—these are the items that filled the wonder chambers, or Wunderkammer, of past centuries.  Often displayed in homes of wealthy private collectors, this phenomenon grew out of a humanistic urge to connect with the world at-large, to collect things, catalog them and share them with others.  The musical Wonder Chamber Project has similar goals—to bring intriguing music found in rare manuscript collections from the past to contemporary audiences. 

     

    The vehicle for these Wonder Chamber performances is a nearly 400-year-old violin strung with gut strings that, in tandem with equally appropriate historical keyboards, is perfectly suited to animate and color these works that are truly full of wonder.
