ONTARIO ARTS COUNCILM CONSEIL DES ARTS DE L'ONTARIOand supported bywholenotewww .ontariocontact.caEARLY Musicby Frank NakashimaHave you ever wondered about the effect that modern technology hashad on historical performance? For example, digital recordings and theWorld Wide Web have had a significant impact in the preservation andthe distribution of music around the world. Still, in most cases, theessence of the music remains true to its origins. Dedicated performingartists are continually making great efforts to practise and research soas to bring the music of the past to life again.Because of motorized vehicles (and our modern lifestyles), wenow need personal trainers to help us to maintain physical health.With telephones and internet, we can communicate from great distancesand never have to move from our chair. Using calculators andcomputers, we don 't have to exercise our brains as much. You wouldthink we would have turned into little blobs by now.Not so with performing arts. For the most part, not much hasphysically changed in the study and practice of music, and historicalperformance continues to offer many challenges, both physical andmental, to those who wish to pursue its study. I salute the many talentedmusicians in our city who perform early music.There's really a lot going on in our city. Perhaps you would like tolearn some more about Early Music, or music before our time? Youcan start by visiting some of these websites on the adjacent page.(Save the page for future reference.) But first, here's some of what'sgoing on, even at this early stage in the season.You should note that an early music "open house" will be takingplace at the historical Montgomery's Inn which has been restored asa living museum to the 1847-50 period (September I 5) - the TorontoEarly Music Centre's annual Early Music Fair at which several ofthe organizations listed below will be represented. There will be miniconcerts,exhibits, and information about the art of historical musicperformance. Pretty much everything you wanted to know about earlymusic (but were afraid to ask).Also September 15, I Furiosi Baroque Ensemble kicks off anotherseason of, dare I say it, baroque bedlam. At least that's whatthe title of the concert suggests: CRAZY, featuring "Mad Songs" byPurcell & Blow and Folies Espagne variations. www.ifuriosi.comThe Horns of Roncesvalles (comprised of the French hornistsStephen Cameron, Derek Conrod, Diane Doig and David Haskins)appear at the Toronto Music Garden (September 16) in the programentitled, "The Taming of the Horn" which includes the music of theMarquis de Dampierre, Bernard Heiden, Richard Wagner and more.Learn about the evolution of the French horn, from the forest to thecourt; from the hunt to the dance.
