Quicksilver Baroque Ensemble
“Revered like rock stars within the early music scene” (The New York Times), QUICKSILVER brings together leading historically-informed performers in North America today. Described as “drop dead gorgeous with a wonderful interplay of timbres,” (Early Music America) and praised as “irresistible” (Fanfare), Quicksilver vibrantly explores the rich chamber music repertoire from the early modern period to the High Baroque. The ensemble has been featured at numerous music series and prestigious festivals, receiving critical acclaim, standing ovations and repeat invitations. The ensemble’s debut recording, Stile Moderno: new music from the seventeenth century was described as “Breakthrough of the Year…breathtaking” (Huffington Post). Quicksilver’s new recording, Fantasticus: Extravagant and Virtuosic Music from 17th Century Germany, has been named one of The New Yorker’s Ten Notable Recordings of 2014 and praised as “Fantasticus, indeed” (Gramophone).
