Camerata Nova at Winnipeg New Music Festival

On Tuesday, Jan 28, 2020, Winnipeg New Music Festival proudly presents Camerata Nova vocal ensemble in a program that builds on the theme of “old made new”.

Conductor John Wiens to lead Camerata Nova and stellar guest artists in ROSA [mys.ti.ka] this Dec 13-14, 2019

John Wiens is joined by Guido Morini (continuo),  Elinor Frey (viola da gamba),  Madeleine Owen  (theorbo), and Bruce Dickey (cornetto).

Joining us Dec 13-14 for ROSA [mys.ti.ka], Bruce Dickey is one of a handful of musicians worldwide who have dedicated themselves to reviving the cornetto

Once an instrument of great virtuosi, but which lamentably fell into disuse in the 19th century. The revival began in the 1950s, but it was largely Bruce Dickey, who, from the late 1970s, created a new renaissance of the instrument, allowing the agility and expressive power of the cornetto to be heard once again.
