LA Baroque Players

Organized in the spring of 1983, the group is recognized as an important early music ensemble. All share a common interest in bringing to audiences definitive performances of early music. 
    Their musical style, elegance, warmth, vigor, transparency of sound, variety of musical color and technical command all add up to programs that captivate audiences.
    Their stylish authority and spirited musicality is creating new audiences for ensembles using authentic instruments and adding new respect to the demanding literature of the Baroque.
    The Los Angeles Baroque Players perform on period instruments or replicas of instruments used in the 17th and 18th centuries. The effects produced are subtler, less harsh than those created by modern instruments. The one keyed transverse flute is crafted of wood, the violin is strung with gut strings and is played with a baroque bow, the baroque cellos also strung with gut strings and is played with a baroque bow as well. The harpsichords they use are based on historical prototypes by makers Roberts & Brazier of the Harpsichord Center.

With style and grace, Calico Winds is taking wind music to the forefront of the chamber music world by artfully reinventing the conventional wind quintet. They chose the name “Calico” to reflect the many colors and textures offered by the instruments of their ensemble. The group blends top-notch playing, great music and an appealing atmosphere, their repertoire incorporating a wide variety of classical music. “They cross all the style lines and get away with it.” (Los Angeles Times).

Calico Winds have delighted audiences across the country, touring to more than half the fifty states, including numerous cities throughout their home state of California.  Their second CD, released on Albany Records, Vintage America: A Musical Meritage, features a diverse collection of original and arranged works reflecting the music and life of early Americans and is often heard on radio stations around the country. In this recording “Calico Winds bring refreshing lightness to music that is too often bellowed…the quintet’s suave phrasing, lively articulation and rhythmic buoyancy are a delight throughout.” (Gramophone)
