Fascinated by the cello's origins and the creative process of new music, Elinor Frey plays both period and modern instruments. Berlin Sonatas, her recent release on the Belgian label Passacaille, with Lorenzo Ghielmi on fortepiano, was nominated for a Juno award and won a 2016 Québec Opus Prize. In Summer 2017, she released Fiorè, the world premiere recording of the sonatas of Angelo Maria Fiorè and unknown Italian arias with Canadian soprano Suzie LeBlanc. She has performed dozens of new works including recent commissions for the baroque cello by Scott Godin, Linda Catlin Smith, Ken Ueno, Isaiah Ceccarelli, and Maxime McKinley. In recent years she has performed with Les Idées heureuses, Il Gardellino, Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal, Clavecin en concert, and Theatre of Early Music, as well as with her quartet, Pallade Musica. Frey holds degrees from McGill, Mannes, and Juilliard.

Elinor Frey Solo Cello



Sunday, July 22, 2018
Toronto Music Garden
479 Queens Quay West

Due to unfortunate circumstances, Taktus is unable to perform at the Toronto Music Garden this Sunday. In their place, internationally renowned baroque cellist Elinor Frey returns to the Music Garden.

Elinor will perform a solo program that includes two Suites for unaccompanied cello by J. S. Bach: the Suite No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 – the piece that inspired the Toronto Music Garden's landscape – and Suite No. 5 in C Minor, BWV 1011, along with early Italian music for cello by Colombi, Vitali, and others.
