This concert was recorded on 27 May 2022 at the Galway Early Music Festival and is available to view until July 31.
Discovering Light is a program inspired by celestial beings and the wonder of our natural night sky. Baroque flutist Teddie Hwang and harpsichordist Yonit Kosovske invite listeners into a space of contemplation in our starry cosmos, accompanied by Teddie's nightscape images especially curated for this program. She weaves her night sky experiences into the narrative of the music such as the incomparable Sonata in B-minor for flute and obbligato harpsichord by Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as other brilliant compositions written for this instrumentation. Contemplative pieces such as Jean-Philippe Rameau's "Dialogue of the Muses" and Jean-Henri d'Anglebert's "Tombeau de Monsieur de Chambonnières" pave the way from our earthly world to the divine and offer moments of solace. Enjoy this journey of discovering light in our timeless universe.
Featuring music by J.S. Bach, J.Ph. Rameau, G. Ph. Telemann, J.C.F. Fischer, and other Baroque composers. Landscape astrophotography from the spectacular dark skies of Europe and the USA.
