Coronavirus/COVID-19 Updates

In response to the CDC and NC DHHS guidelines issued for COVID-19, as well as those set by Duke University and the City of Durham, our Family Concert and the Duke Chapel Bach Cantata concerts that were scheduled for Sunday, March 22 are canceled. Mallarmé will reschedule the Bach and Forward Family concert for next season and keep our fingers crossed that the Duke Chapel Bach Cantata Series Concert can be rescheduled for sometime this summer.

We have not yet made a determination about out two upcoming series concerts on May 5 (Mexican string music at Sharp 9 Gallery) and June 20 (Come Hear NC with a world premiere by composer Kenneth Frazelle at St Stephen’s Episcopal Church); we are taking a wait and see attitude and will be in contact concerning both of them. The calendar below will remain updated with the latest information.

Featured Artist

Jaap Ter Linden

Baroque Cello/Viola Da Gama/Conductor

As one of the first early music specialists, Jaap ter Linden witnessed the very beginnings of many of the oldest and finest baroque ensembles as co-founder of Musica da Camera and principal cellist of Musica Antiqua Köln, The English Concert and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. From these auspicious beginnings, he moved further into the spotlight, either playing solo concerts and intimate ensemble repertoire with the world’s finest interpreters or at the helm of an orchestra as conductor.

He founded and directs the Mozart Akademie (with which he has recorded the complete Mozart symphonies) and is a regular guest director and soloist with the Arion Ensemble (Canada). He has led many period instrument orchestras such as  Philharmonia Baroque (San Francisco), Portland Baroque and Amsterdam Bach Soloists, and has lent his expertise to modern ensembles such as the Amsterdam Sinfonietta and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie.

His extensive discography as player and conductor boasts many award-winning recordings for labels such as Harmonia Mundi, Archiv, ECM, Deutsche Grammophon and more recently Brilliant Classics. In 2006, Jaap released his second recording of the Bach Cello Suites.

Most recently, Jaap has dived into the world of opera, conducting Purcell’s King Arthur with the Städtische Bühne Münster and Gluck’s Iphigénie en Aulide with the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. With pianist David Breitman, he recorded the complete works for cello and piano by Beethoven in 2013. 

After many years of teaching at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, ter Linden moved to the United States in 2016 and currently lives in Ohio.
