Worth Fighting For

January 15 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$15 – $30

The much-sought-after Canadian violinist Julia Wedman leads Victoria Baroque in a journey of exquisite, imaginative, and unique Baroque works. She takes listeners through riveting musical depictions of soldiers on the battlefield, the humorous consequences of feasting on too many beans, dance-driven and hauntingly beautiful instrumental suites, paired with the mesmerising and thought-provoking recent work “White Man’s Cattle” by Indigenous composer Cris Derksen.

“Her performance exude humanity… Both Biber’s music and Wedman’s performances are inspirational.” – Gramophone 2011

Purcell: Dance Suite from King Arthur
Biber: Battalia
Schmelzer: Sonata a 5 Al giorno delle correggie
