Valentin Radu, leading the Camerata Ama Deus Baroque Chamber Orchestra, will present two concerts of exhilarating music from the artistic genius of four acknowledged musical giants of the European Baroque period of musical composition (roughly from the late-1680s to the mid-1700s). Titled Brilliant Baroque, this concert will be offered on two evenings at opposite ends of the Greater Delaware Valley.

♫ On Friday, March 22, 2019 at 8:00 p.m. the performance will be presented in the Saint Martin-in-the-Fields Church at 8000 Saint Martin’s Lane, which is located at the intersection of West Willow Grove Avenue in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, PA 19118.

The concert will feature three superb solo artists who are acknowledged favorites of the discerning VoxAmaDeus audience:

Concertmaster and dazzling violinist, Thomas DiSarlo;

Vox’s stellar recorder virtuoso, Rainer Beckmann, and:

Enchanting transverse flute artist, Steven Zohn.

Maestro Radu has programmed entertaining, alluring and irresistible music composed by German and Italian masters Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello (1690-1758), Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767), and Antonio Vivaldi (1680-1743).

An avid raconteur, Maestro Radu will engage the audience with informative “Live Notes” about the composers, their times and the works to be performed.
