HEAR THE MUSIC
Jory Vinikour, Harpsichord
Jory Vinikour is recognized as one of the outstanding harpsichordists of his generation. A highly-diversified career takes him to the world’s most important festivals, concert halls, and opera houses as recitalist and concerto soloist, partner to many of today’s finest instrumental and vocal artists, coach, and conductor.
Born in Chicago, Jory Vinikour came to Paris on a Fulbright scholarship to study with Huguette Dreyfus and Kenneth Gilbert. First Prizes in the International Harpsichord Competitions of Warsaw (1993) and the Prague Spring Festival (1994) brought him to the public’s attention, and he has since appeared in festivals and concert series throughout much of the world.
A concerto soloist with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Poulenc to Nyman, he has performed as soloist with leading orchestras including Rotterdam Philharmonic, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, Philharmonic of Radio France, Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, MDR Symphony Orchestra, Cape Town Symphony Orchestra, Moscow Chamber Orchestra, and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, with conductors such as Stéphane Denève, Martin Haselböck, Marek Janowski, Armin Jordan, Benjamin Levy, Fabio Luisi, Marc Minkowski, John Nelson, Gordan Nikolic, Constantine Orbelian, Victor Yampolsky, et al. He participated in a recording of Frank Martin’s Petite Symphonie Concertante with the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Armin Jordan (Suisse Romande, 2005).
Ann Marie Morgan, Viola da Gamba
Praised by the Baltimore Sun for her “beguiling musicality” Ann Marie Morgan is a frequent guest artist on viola da gamba and has performed in the Bach St. John and St. Matthew Passions with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Minnesota Orchestra as well as Brandenburg Concerto number six with the Cleveland Orchestra and Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. She is a regular guest at numerous Bach Festivals including Oregon, Bethlehem, and Boulder and has been concerto soloist on viola da gamba and cello piccolo with Apollo’s Fire: The Cleveland Baroque Orchestra and the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado.
This season Ms. Morgan was a featured lecturer at the University of Minnesota on their “Tuesdays with Bach!” Series, speaking about the role of the viola da gamba in the works of JS Bach. She returns to Minneapolis in March to perform the St. Matthew Passion in a staged production in collaboration with the Hochschule from Detmold, Germany. Also in March she will join her colleagues Nicholas Phan and Michael Leopold for a presentation of “A Painted Tale” at the CRR Concert Hall in Istanbul, Turkey. She performed two the Bach solo cello suites on the Evensong Series at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Denver as well as “Rosebuds Dancing” (viol and electronics) on the CU Boulder Pendulum Series.
