Cape Town Baroque Festival director Erik Dippenaar and Ralitza Macheva on baroque violin at last years festival. Now in its third year, the Cape Town Baroque Festival (CTBF) will be held from Wednesday September 18 to Tuesday September 24 at various venues. Themed “Diversity in Early Music”, the 2019 festival celebrates the variety of styles and genres of music from the Baroque period.This year’s festival will be the first time that concerts will be held in the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA) at the V&A Waterfront and Youngblood Gallery in Bree Street. Also, it is the first time that a newly composed work will be performed – a reimagining of JS Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.3 by local composer Hans Roosenschoon.The festival’s premier concert is Big Bach Bonanza! on Friday September 20 in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Strand Street, at 8pm.It includes a variety of compositional genres that Bach used and brings together a large group of baroque specialists, directed by harpsichordist and festival director Erik Dippenaar.The concert features international soloists Erik Bosgraaf (recorder) and Raphael Pouget (natural trumpet), who will also perform in Chamber Baroque on Saturday September 21 at the Baxter Concert Hall, at 7.30pm. For the Chamber Baroque concert, Anna Stoddard will present a pre-concert talk about this unique programme of 18th century chamber music at 6.30pm in the concert hall.Another unique performance on this year’s programme is a demonstration of the carillon in the Cape Town City Hall tower by Alexios Vicatos. Three guest ensembles will present diverse programmes. The Flat Mountain Project, a team of musicians who collaborate on projects that showcase modern and experimental classical music, can be heard in Four Seasons Recomposed.The ensemble Here Be Dragons, led by instrumentalist and composer Jan-Hendrik Harley, explores folk music performed in and around the main cultural centres in Europe during the 15th and 16th century in the concert Folk101.The Lutesong Duo – Lente Louw (mezzosoprano) and Uwe Grosser (theorbo, lute, baroque guitar) – teams up with fellow musicians for Musica Rustica, a programme of light vocal music from Renaissance Italy that will be paired with Neapolitan-inspired canapés at the 6 Spin Street Restaurant.Since its inception, the CTBF has invested in upcoming local players of baroque music, and this year young recorder players and pupils from the Ronnie Samaai Music Education Project will receive master classes from Bosgraaf.

People understood they were linked and I’m not interested in adopting legislation that could be changed by some future council. It should be in the charter and putting some teeth in it.” Greuel took a similar tack, saying both ethics reform and term limits should go before voters. “I think an issue like ethics reform deserves to be mandated in the City Charter so it isn’t so easily changed by legislation,” Greuel said. “Different city councils could look at things differently, and I think the voters should have a say on this and a chance to make it permanent.” Bob Stern, who heads the Center for Governmental Studies in Los Angeles, said he believes the measure giving council members – but not citywide officeholders – three terms instead of two would fail on its own. City Council President Eric Garcetti on Monday dismissed as “insider baseball on technicalities” legal and other objections raised by Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo to putting a term limits extension measure on the November ballot. With a showdown vote set for Wednesday, Garcetti and council president pro tem Wendy Greuel were pushing for the council to ignore Delgadillo and put its term limits and ethics reform proposals before voters. Delgadillo on Friday questioned whether it was legal to link the measures and suggested that the ethics package should be properly the subject of public hearings and the Ethics Commission. Some elements might be unnecessary or even a step backward, he said. But Garcetti said those concerns were not significant. “I think that some voters would have been willing to go along with term limits as long as it was part of an ethics reform plan,” Stern said. “Without that, it’s only term limits and it will be a much more difficult sell for voters. “And, it leaves the council in a difficult position now. It can go ahead and put the entire package on the ballot and leave legal questions, separate out term limits or decide to do nothing.” The proposals were developed by the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and the League of Women Voters to provide what they said was more stability in city government. Under the present two-term limit, they argued, officials are looking for their next political office instead of learning to be effective in the office they hold. Delgadillo’s 10-page legal opinion threw the issue into political limbo and prompted sharp criticism from some council members who were trying to fast-track the measure with little public input. A spokesman said the city attorney would not cave in to political pressure. “It is standard proper procedure for the City Attorney’s Office to provide the City Council with a report on proposed charter amendments,” spokesman Nick Velasquez said. “The city attorney is an independently elected official, who, under the City Charter, provides legal advice to the municipal entity, which includes the City Council. “City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo is nobody’s rubber stamp and he is not going to sit on his hands when his office’s legal analysis details flaws or serious questions that could leave the city open to future liability.” Among the sharpest critics of Delgadillo was Councilman Herb Wesson, a key negotiator on the issue. “We asked him to draft the language on this,” said Wesson. “We did not ask him to put in his 2 cents’ worth.” Wesson also said he thinks voters may be willing to support the term-limits extension. “In 2002, we had a poorly worded proposal on the ballot to extend term limits for state legislators and it passed in Los Angeles County. I think we can make an argument for this.” firstname.lastname@example.org (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Mohamed Salah withdraws from Egypt squad after aggravating ankle injury CL: Genk banking on star striker Mbwana Ally Samatta against Liverpool Champions League: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain brace as Liverpool defeat Genk 4-1 Jurgen Klopp insists he never doubted Mohamed Salah as the Egyptian ended an eight-game scoring drought to help fire Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League. Salah returned to scoring form with an outstanding solo run and finish as Liverpool recovered from falling a goal behind to beat Southampton 3-1 at St Mary’s and move two points clear of Manchester City. The title remains in City’s hands, however, as the English champions have a game in hand. However, Liverpool continue to pile on the pressure in their pursuit to end a 29-year wait to win the league. Klopp’s side appeared in danger of dropping valuable points until Salah intervened in the 80th minute to claim his 50th Premier League goal for Liverpool in only his second season at the club. “It was never in doubt that he was a great player in my side,” said Klopp.Related News “It was goal number 50 for Liverpool, an incredible number. He’s very consistent.” Salah has been criticised in recent weeks for being too selfish in front of goal in desperation to end his scoreless streak. Yet, on this occasion he chose the right option despite the presence of Roberto Firmino in support. When asked if he considered playing in the Brazilian, Salah told Sky Sports: “Not at all. As a striker you need to score. I made my decision to shoot.” Liverpool were once again forced to demonstrate their resilience as they struggled to find their most fluent form after Southampton established a ninth-minute lead through Shane Long. Naby Keita equalised in the 36th minute with his first Liverpool goal but it was not until Salah struck that Klopp’s side could be confident of moving two points ahead of City at the head of the table.
