La Tour Baroque Duo
Based in New Brunswick, the La Tour Baroque Duo brings together outstanding early music performers Tim Blackmore (recorder) and Michel Cardin (theorbo) to present inspired programs of 17th and 18th century music on period instruments. The Duo derives its name from Charles St-Étienne de La Tour, Lieutenant-General of the French colony of Acadie in the 17th century.
Recorder player and harpsichordist Tim Blackmore has received praise in Canada and abroad as a musician of ‘undaunted enterprise, formidable technical powers and lyrical expressiveness’ (London Daily Telegraph). A native of Montreal, Michel Cardin has gained international recognition as a teacher, performer, musicologist and producer. Professeur of guitar and lute at the University of Moncton, which in 1992 awarded him the status of a PhD, he obtained a Premier Prix in guitar from the Montreal Conservatoire in 1977.
Formed in 2009, the La Tour Baroque Duo has performed throughout eastern Canada, Québec, Ontario and the far north as well as in France and in the USA, receiving accolades such as “exquisitely played” and “spellbinding” from critics and audiences alike.
Reservations must be made by the Thursday before the concert.
