    This week’s Hidden Garden movie (Friday February 22, 7:30 PM Knox Hall) is
    Cleo from 5 to 7 (1962) Comedy/Drama/Music   Directed by Agnes Varda nominated for Palme d’Or at Cannes Festival IMDB rating 8.0 (very high) Cleo, a singer and hypochondriac, becomes increasingly worried that she might have cancer while awaiting test results from her doctor.She is certain that it will be a terminal cancer diagnosis, her mind fixated on that outcome and what it actually means. This belief affects how she approaches the day, from her encounters with friends and acquaintances to what she observes in total strangers around her. It could be as simple as how she views the lyrics to new songs presented to her from her songwriting team, to her feelings about a conversation she overhears in a café between a couple having relationship problems, to the typical sweet nothings spoken to her from her lover, José.

    A versatile musician and educator, Josephine van Lier is equally at ease on a historic instruments – such as baroque cello, a 5 string violoncello piccolo, a 7 string bass viola da gamba, a violone or a tenor or treble gamba –  as on their contemporary counterparts, using instruments and bows whose designs, construction and material span over 400 years in origin; from her 1725 baroque cello, to her 1870 modern cello and the space-age material of her carbon-fibre cello, from gut strings on her historic instruments, to steel strings on the modern ones. She therefore covers a wide variety of repertoire utilizing the endless possibilities that this range of instruments, string set-ups and bows allow her.

    She recently found “the cello of her dreams”, a baroque cello built by John Sexton in 1725.Josephine has garnered much world-wide critical acclaim for her 4-disc recording of the Bach cello suites in leading publications around the world, such as Strad Magazine, Oxford Early Music and including an “Editor’s Choice”, five-star rating from London’s “Early Music Today”.

    Founding member and artistic director of Early Music Alberta, Josephine van Lier is a strong advocate for the historically informed performance practice of early music. A passionate and very active performer, soloist and chamber musician, Josephine is always looking for challenging and exciting projects. She performs throughout North America, Asia and Europe.She is much sought after across North America for performing, adjudicating festivals, teaching masterclasses, holding lectures and for directing workshops on historically informed performance practice.
    Josephine van Lier is the founder and artistic director/conductor of La Folia, Edmonton’s baroque string ensemble specialized in the historically informed performance of little known music of the renaissance and baroque eras.
    Josephine thoroughly enjoys teaching cello, baroque cello, viola da gamba, cello ensemble and viola da gamba consort out of her private studio. Her students are enthusiastic and active members of Edmonton’s rich music scene.
    She is recipient of the “Celebration of Women in the Arts Award” from the Edmonton Arts Council.
