Festival Concerts

Kathryn Montoya, recorder &
Kristian Bezuidenhout, harpsichord

New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, Boston

The Boston Early Music Festival regretfully announces that due to Visa complications, Han Tol and Boreas Quartett Bremen will be unable to perform their scheduled concert. We remain enthusiastic about presenting these dynamic instrumentalists at a future date. We also regret to announce that the originally announced replacement Stefan Temmingh suffered a minor injury in a bicycle accident and is unable to perform. We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to bringing him to the BEMF Concert Stage in the future.

We are, however, very pleased to announce that taking their place will be a duo recital featuring recorder virtuoso and frequent BEMF collaborator Kathryn Montoya and keyboardist Kristian Bezuidenhout. A mainstay of the BEMF Orchestra for many Festivals, Montoya is in high demand with frequent performances with North America's premier Early Music ensembles, including Tafelmusik, Pacific Musicworks, Apollo's Fire, and the Handel and Haydn Society. Montoya will partner with fellow BEMF favorite Kristian Bezuidenhout, playing harpsichord, in a dazzling finale to a thrilling week of Festival Concerts.
