Our ensemble aims to bring the spirit of this wonderful music alive in today’s world, capturing its vivid and evocative colors, enlivened with the spirit of improvisation and dance. Baroque composers knew the power of music to move listeners to experience a spectrum of emotions, and the equal role of the performer in this endeavor. As an ensemble we take our cue from Geminiani, who urged musicians to be first inspired themselves, and “while the imagination is warm and glowing [to pour] the same exalted spirit into [our] own performance.”
