About This Event
New Vintage Baroque
New Vintage Baroque, is an adventurous period instrument ensemble dedicated to the creation of a 21st century repertoire for early instruments. Inviting audiences to examine their relationship with both the past and the present, their performances inventively weave together narration, new commissions, and music of the Baroque. Founded in 2011, by Lindsay McIntosh (Baroque oboe ‘14), during her second year at the Juilliard School, New Vintage Baroque and it’s players are committed to bringing the highest level of historical performance practice to their audiences.
Recent projects have included a New York-Netherlands tour of Gregory Spears’ cantata Virginiana, a rap cantata cycle by Doug Balliett, and the completion of their first album,The Passionate Pilgrim, a song cycle by The Oracle Hysterical for voices and Baroque band. For their recent performances of Handel’s Rinaldo with Boston Opera Collaborative, the Boston Globe cited New Vintage’s “graceful, songful playing… a major element in the production’s success.”
