Founded in 2014, the Boston-based Antico Moderno is a collective of musicians who are dedicated to expanding the repertoire of music written for period instruments, right up until the present day. They challenge twentieth-century composers to come to terms with the rich rhetorical sensibilities of the Baroque era, and to explore the sonic and stylistic possibilities that historical models open up. Currently the ensemble-in-residence at First Lutheran Church in Boston, Antico Moderno has been visiting artists at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and the Yale School of Music.
