O Fortuna Crudele
On Sunday 9th February the Amersfoort concert organisation Music on Chairs presented the concert ‘O Fortuna Crudele’. It was a mixed baroque concert, with the world famous baroque oboeist Marcel Ponseele, soprano Henriette Feith, baritone Robbert Muuse, harpsichordist Kathryn Cok and horn player Wouter Verschuren. They played vocal and instrumental music by J.S. Bach, Händel, Telemann, Scarlatti, Thiel and Platti.

The star of the concert is the baroque oboe. The participation of Ponseele, one of the world’s best baroque oboists, was fully exploited. The lovely duet “Mein Freund ist mein” from cantata BWV 140 by Bach, the aria “Ho tanti afanni in petto” for soprano and oboe by Händel and the triosonata in Es by Telemann are examples.
We’re also playing the solo cantata “Zischet nur, stechet, ihr feurigen Zungen” by Telemann and sonatas by Platti, Telemann, Thiel and Scarlatti.


Arwen Bouw en Eveline Juten
