Baroque band ACRONYM — an “outstanding young early-music string ensemble”
(The New Yorker)—is dedicated to giving modern premieres of the wild instrumental music of the seventeenth century. Playing with “…consummate style, grace, and unity of spirit” (The New York Times), the group formed in 2012 and has released ten critically acclaimed CDs since 2014. Projects include the ﬁrst modern performances and recordings of works by Biber, Rosenmüller, Capricornus, and more. The band’s most recent album, Cantica Obsoleta (2020), features the modern premiere recordings of nearly-lost works from Sweden’s Düben Collection. The Boston Globe raves, “this musical time-capsule oﬀers enough resplendence to transport anyone.” Recent and upcoming engagements for ACRONYM include the Boston Early Music Festival, Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht (Netherlands), Music Before 1800 (NYC), Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston), Oberlin’s Artist Recital Series, Hamilton College Performing Arts Series (Clinton, NY), Baldwin Wallace Bach Festival (OH), Lincoln Friends of Chamber Music (NE), Arizona Early Music Society, Indianapolis Early Music Festival, Chamber Music Wilmington (NC), and Five Boroughs Music Festival in New York City.
