"Period music made hip and madly entertaining"
"Remarkably good musicians"
I FURIOSI Baroque Ensemble is one of the world's most innovative Baroque ensembles, comprised of four of Canada's leading early music specialists: soprano Gabrielle McLaughlin, violinists Aisslinn Nosky and Julia Wedman, and cellist/gambist Felix Deak. For a decade and a half, I FURIOSI's Toronto concert series has been revitalising the face of early music in Canada, inspired by the practice of the Baroque era while invoking the "bizarre and unnatural" aesthetic both cherished and despised in its time. Thematic programming allows the performers to present Baroque music in a uniquely relevant way.

Everyone has had experience with unreciprocated love – either on the side of the admirer or of the admired. Sometimes emotions are lopsided in one person’s favour and there is just nothing to be done. I FURIOSI is joined by soprano Merry-Anne Stuart and organist Stephanie Martin in an illustration of rejection and futility.
Guests: Merry-Anne Stuart, soprano; Stephanie Martin, organ
Calvin Presbyterian Church, Toronto
