In the eighth and final Salish Sea Early Music Festival performance on Whidbey Island in 2019, harpsichordist Jonathan Oddie, violist and violinist Stephen Creswell, baroque cellist Caroline Nicolas and one-key baroque flutist Jeffrey Cohan perform quartets stretching through the 18th century by Telemann, C.P.E. Bach, Joseph Haydn and others in "18th-Century Quartets" on Sunday, June 23 at 7:00 PM at St. Augustine’s in-the-Woods Episcopal Church at 5217 South Honeymoon Bay Road in Freeland on Whidbey Island.
The program will range from one of the most well known quartets for these instruments by Georg Philipp Telemann from early in the century to a quartet for obbligato keyboard with flute, viola, cello by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714 – 1788), a quartet by Joseph Haydn and other rarely heard quartets by little-known late 18th-century composers Tommaso Giordani (c. 1730-1806), J. Schmittbauer (1718 – 1809) and Johann Gottlieb Naumann (1741 – 1801).
