A few early music ensembles of note, in their own words.

  • DENMARK: Via Artis Konsort – “…an international ensemble with musical focus aimed at the undiscovered treasures from the late Medieval to early Classic period…formed by skilled musicians from Scandinavia, Spain and Poland.”
  • THE NETHERLANDSThe New Dutch Academy (Simon Murphy, cond.) – “…an international award winning orchestra, specialising in early music, performing on authentic instruments…known for its engaging and dynamic performances and particularly for bringing newly re-discovered 18th century works onto the concert platform…based in The Hague…”
  • SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA: Voices of Music – “…performs both renaissance and baroque music, drawing upon the many and varied sources for historical performance practice. Performances are one on a part, with an emphasis on combining both instrumental and vocal styles of interpretation and ornamentation.”
