About the Artists
Housing one of the world's major collections of musical instruments, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. has pioneered in the restoration and performance use of early instruments. Much to the delight of Washington concertgoers, and more recently to concertgoers across the country, the Smithsonian Chamber Players devote their talents to bringing the museum collection to life. Four national tours have given the Players the distinction of being the only American touring group of its size to perform the works of such composers as Bach, Haydn, Schubert, Mozart, and Vivaldi on period instruments. Those instruments include woodwinds of only one or two keys, natural horns, gut strings, and faithfully constructed copies of a 1795 German fortepiano and an 18th century French harpsichord. Members of the ensemble are specialists who teach at principal centers for Baroque activity and perform internationally; they are also musicians renowned for performances and recordings on modern instruments. Recently the Chamber Players launched a recording series on the Smithsonian Collection label with a recording of the Handel Concerti Grossi, Op. 3.
Tonight's performance is the Players' first in Ann Arbor.
