https://www.instagram.com/p/BKIoljIjcT8/ New Comma Baroque's Phillip W. Serna is caught #SomewhereInTime with Telemann's ‘Lost’ 12 Fantasias for Solo Viol, 1735 Sept. 25th at the Fine Arts Music - Performance and Scholarship Series http://goo.gl/xdJsNl http://fb.me/1mYxiwioe https://pic.twitter.com/onIVpBIDWE

Located in 2014 by Thomas Fritzsch, a copy of Telemann’s self-published 1735 fantasias for viola da gamba survived near Hanover at Ledenburg Palace in the collection of Eleonore von Münster (née von Grothaus, 1734-1794). Dedicated to musical subscriber Mr. Pierre Chaunell (1703-1789) and published in a period when the viol was already out of fashion in Europe, Telemann’s unique fantasias encompass a plethora of forms – both old and new, inspired by the Polish and Moravian music of his early career, filled with techniques spanning fugal writing to elements of the rondo and concerto, straddling the High Baroque and the galant. Somewhere in Time:Telemann's ‘Lost’ Fantasias

VdGS 3rd Coast - Special Benefit Concert: The Nymphs of the Rhine http://on.fb.me/1QhTBw2
June 3, 2016 7:00PM
Thanks to the Viola da Gamba Society of America (VdGSA)'s Consort Loan Program, Phillip Serna is partnering with Naperville North High School orchestra director Dana Green to start a viol consort program in Chicago's western suburbs. However, we need YOUR help! In an effort to engage the community, raise awareness about our work, we are holding a benefit concert to raise money to purchase viols once the loan period is exhausted. The Viola da Gamba Society 3rd Coast (VdGS Third Coast), New Comma Baroque's Phillip Serna and the Naperville North High School Department of Music will present a showcase attracting top viol players from across the Midwest, and indeed the country, to marathon Schenck's complete Nymphs of the Rhine. Please help us build a presence for Early Music in the western suburbs and consider giving!
