Hello everyone,
This is my first post on this forum. I think it's great to have a place where classical music can be discussed on the web. I have been listening to classical music for nine years now, I have subsequently studied it and I play piano and baroque recorder.

My favourite style of music is baroque, and I like best the older recordings (pre 1985). I don't like the new "style" of playing,; I think it's much too fast and so much of the music is lost.

My question is this: because there is so much baroque music only now being rediscovered and recorded, can anyone recommend a current ensemble who play both on modern instruments AND play the music not too fast? (By not too fast I mean similar to early I Musici).

Thanks,
Huey

Welcome Huey! Hope to see you around https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Regarding your question... hmmmm... I'm not really an expert when it comes to the various ensembles, especially not the baroque ensembles that play on modern instruments - simply because there are so many and I would prefer to give a well founded answer instead of just mentioning a name.

Anyhow, hope some other members or visitors of MIMF.dk have some suggestions. And please let us know what your fndings are on the subject, Huey

The only baroque ensemble that I know of is in Toronto Canada:
