"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.

I FURIOSI presents stalking, before harrassment laws were conceived.
