Quicksilver

“Revered like rock stars within the early music scene” (New York Times), Quicksilver brings together today’s top North American historically-informed performers. Described as “drop dead gorgeous with a wonderful interplay of timbres” (Early Music America) and praised as “irresistible” (Fanfare Magazine), Quicksilver vibrantly explores the rich chamber music repertoire from the early modern period to the High Baroque.

Quicksilver has been featured at numerous music series and festivals, receiving critical acclaim, standing ovations, and repeat invitations. Recent and upcoming appearances include Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center Mostly Mozart Festival, Concerts from the Library of Congress, CU Presents (Colorado), The Toronto Consort, The Da Camera Society (Los Angeles), San Diego Early Music Society, the Boston Early Music Festival, Early Music Festival Vancouver, Berkeley Festival & Exhibition, Early Music Now (Milwaukee), Chamber Music Tulsa, Indianapolis Early Music, The San Francisco Early Music Society, Miami Bach Society, Madison Early Music Festival, Dumbarton Concerts (Washington, D.C.), Houston Early Music, Early Music Hawaii, and Music Before 1800 (New York City).

Quicksilver’s debut recording, Stile Moderno was described as “Breakthrough of the Year…breathtaking” (Huffington Post). The ensemble’s latest recording, Fantasticus was named one of The New Yorker’s Ten Notable Recordings of 2014, praised as “Fantasticus, indeed” (Gramophone). Quicksilver’s forthcoming recording, The (very) First Viennese School, will be released next season.
