This new release is a beautiful program of Baroque works performed on period instruments by the Musicians of the Old Post Road. Musicians of the Old Post Road is a chamber ensemble based in Boston that specializes in the period instrument performance of dynamic and diverse music from the Baroque to early Romantic eras. Its repertoire includes compelling "rediscovered" works that have been lost to audiences for centuries. Audiences and critics agree that Old Post Road's approach to historical performance is fresh and engaging. In 1998 the group was chosen as the recipient of the Noah Greenberg Award from the American Musicological Society. The ensemble has toured North America and Europe and has six album recordings to its credit. "Musicians of the Old Post Road is a cleverly conceived and impeccably presented group of artists who render a great service in the realm of period performance. Through their scholarship, programming, and enthusiasm, they shine a light on a corner of the repertoire that is too often neglected." (Classical Voice of New England).
