"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.

Friday, October 6th, 2017


Everyone has a favourite body part – if not their own, then someone else’s.  I FURIOSI is joined by harpsichordist James Johnstone, as they laud the various naughty and not-so-naughty bits.  The concert starts at the top, and works its way down.

Guest: James Johnstone, harpsichord


Friday, March 2nd, 2018


Mental instability can be a result of many different things – unrequited love, power struggles, chemical imbalances, genetics, rage…  The ensemble whips off the strait-jackets for this presentation of lunacy from the Baroque era.
