The members of the Magnolia Baroque ensemble are key participants in Winston-Salem’s wonderful Magnolia Baroque Festival, a gathering held every other year that attracts top talent from around the world to celebrate and perform great music of the baroque era.
For its NCMA debut in honor of the exhibition Rembrandt in America, the ensemble attempts no less than to perform music that would have beenfamiliar to Rembrandt during his time in Amsterdam. The musicians use period instruments and performance techniques that are true to the golden age of this powerful and culturally sophisticated city. The music is by Sweelinck, Huygens, Schenk, and Van Eyck.
Glenn Siebert, tenor; Timothy Olsen, harpsichord; Brent Wissick, viola da gamba; Jennifer Streeter, recorder
