Victoria Baroque
Now in its seventh season, the Victoria Baroque presents dynamic, personal, and engaging performances of music from the Baroque and Classical periods. The ensemble brings together early music specialists from Vancouver Island and beyond for explorations of chamber, orchestral, vocal and choral works. Playing on instruments of the 18th century, the ensemble brings audiences closer to the sound world of the period, embracing the dance-driven rhythmic vitality, as well as the lyrical and conversational aspects of baroque music.
Kati Debretzeni - Baroque Violin
Born in Transylvania, Kati studied the violin with Ora Shiran in Israel, and the Baroque violin with Catherine Mackintosh and Walter Reiter at the Royal College of Music in London. Since the year 2000 she leads the English Baroque Soloists under Sir John Eliot Gardiner, and since 2008 she is one of the leaders of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, which she has directed and lead in the UK, Europe and the US under Ivan Fischer, Sir Roger Norrington, Stephen Isserlis, Robert Levin, Robin Ticciati and others. 

She recorded chamber music with Florilegium (Channel Classics), Ricordo (Linn Records) and most recently Trio Goya (Chandos). Kati features as soloist on two versions of Bach's Brandenburg concertos, with the European Brandenburg Ensemble under Trevor Pinnock (Gramophone Award, 2008), and again with the English Baroque Soloists. She has directed from the violin various ensembles in Israel, Poland, Norway, Iceland and the UK, and teaches the Baroque and Classical violin at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague.
