Ensemble Chaconne plays music from 18th century London
Ensemble Chaconne enthralls audiences with dramatic period-instrument performances of music from Renaissance and Baroque Europe. Repertoire ranges from well-known masterpieces to recently discovered works. Peter H. Bloom (Renaissance and Baroque flutes), Carol Lewis (viola da gamba), and Olav Chris Henriksen (lute, theorbo and early guitar) bring exhilaration and theatrical intensity to an intimate chamber setting with their vivid, historically-informed performance of music from the 16th through the 18th centuries.
The theme of their concert in Lincoln will be "European Masters in 18th century London", a fascinating survey of the music that captured the imagination of Londoners, from favorites during the early part of the century, to composers who were active in London at the end.
The three musicians have performed together since 1985, while also appearing in solo recitals and concertizing widely with other ensembles. In 27 years as a touring ensemble, the group has achieved unity and graceful interplay as a trio, while highlighting the strength and expressiveness of each individual.
Ensemble Chaconne is a member of the Early Music America Touring Roster, the New England States Touring Program, the Massachusetts Cultural Council Performing and Touring Roster, and the South Carolina Arts Commission's Artists-in Education Roster.
