Hisgestures and language communicateat all times that - no matterwhether the subject matter bejoyful, painful, gruesome orbreathtakingly beautiful - the aimof 17th and 18th century composerswas to be elegant above all.We always look at style and substanceas polar opposites in themodern age, but back then theywere virtually synonymous.I've also always admired I vars'great attention to detail, attackingminute issues of articulation,phrasing, tuning and dynamics;the resulting performances arecrystal clear and full of meaning.Conductors sometimes get lost inthe beauty of a piece and won'tunderstand what makes it so.I vars has definite ideas of whatmakes a piece interesting andgreat strategies for getting beautyand meaning across.I first met I vars in Sir ErnestMacMillan's living room in thelate 1970s. I was 15 at the timeand was lucky enough to sit inwith him on a reading of theMendelsohn Octet for Strings, an!vars Taurinsoccasion I remember vividly. Ourpaths crossed again a decade laterwhen I got up the nerve to auditionfor the Tafelmusik ChamberChoir. The first performances Isang in were of Purcell's FairyQueen in 1989 and that experiencechanged my life. I will alwaysbe indebted to Ivars and thework he does with the choir yearin year out, giving this city somememorable readings of the greatmasterworks of Bach, Handel,Mozart, Zelenka, Charpentier,and many others. Lately, he hasalso embraced contemporary musicand his and the choir's relationshipwith Soundstreams is anexciting new chapter.Congratulations, !vars. Thankyou for caring as deeply aboutmusic as you do.
