Description:

The Sonnambula Ensemble

Praised as "superb" by Alex Ross, and hailed as a "fine home-town group," by The New Yorker, Sonnambula is a Renaissance ensemble that brings to light unknown music for various combinations of early instruments with the lush sound of the viol at the core. The group has performed on historic instruments at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, has been a featured ensemble at the Amherst and Boston Early Music Festivals, and has presented concerts at The Frick Collection, Alice Tully Hall, Columbia University, Spectrum, and The Museum of Biblical Art in New York, as well as in numerous other venues throughout the Northeast. This season, Sonnambula continued its residency at The Hispanic Society of America with a concert of premieres of 18th-century Cuban music in conjunction with the Cuban Cultural Center of New York.
