Tonight: French Baroque musical fashions from four well-tailored period musicians

Olivier Fortin

Montreal-based harpsicord master Olivier Fortin — someone Torontonians usually hear in the company of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra — is in some very fine company with flautist Alison Melville, baroque violinist Kathleen Kajioka and gamba player Justin Haynes in a concert tonight of chamber music by French Baroque greats Jean-Philippe Rameau, François Couperin, Marin Marais, Joseph de Boismortier — plus a Paris Quartet, by Georg Philipp Telemann.

The concert starts tonight at 8, ay St David’s Anglican Church, across the street from the Donlands TTC station. Admission is $20 ($15 for students and seniors) at the door.

As a teaser, here are Olivier Fortin and Skip Sempé playing Rameau’s La Cupis:
