Frances Blaker and William Simms

Ensemble Vermillian has been performing and recording since 2003. Sisters Frances Blaker (recorder) and Barbara Blaker Krumdieck (baroque cello) form the core of the ensemble, expanding it to include other instruments depending on repertoire. The group explores less familiar repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries and makes it their own through transcription for their particular instruments. In this concert Ensemble Vermillian presents sacred and secular music from both well-known and lesser-known German composers of the 17th century: Christoph Bernhard’s motet Aus der Tieffen, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer’s Ciaccona for recorder and continuo, Laudate Dominum for soprano, violin, and continuo from Rupert Ignaz Mayr’s Sacri Concentus, Op. 3, and Buxtehude’s Sonata in G, BuxWV 271, for recorder, violin, and continuo.

ENSEMBLE VERMILLIAN: Frances Baker, recorders; David Wilson, Violin; Barbara Blaker Krumdieck, cello; William Simms, theorbo and baroque guitar, with guest performers Margaret Carpenter Haigh, soprano; Nicolas Haigh, harpsichord.
