Harmonia Podcast #131: The Palladian Ensemble Transformed



If you’ve been listening to baroque chamber music and buying recordings during the last couple of decades, you will have surely run into the Palladian Ensemble‘s many CDs, which were released in a steady stream in the 90s and then trickled in more recent years.

Like many ensembles, they’ve had their share of personnel changes, but it wasn’t until 2007, with the departure of recorder player Pamela Thorby, that the group re-conceived itself, including a slight name change. With the name The Palladians they became a more traditional sort of baroque ensemble (violin plus basso continuo section). Nevertheless, their most recent recordings are terrific as always.
