I first came across your group by seeing Julia on a dvd of "Sing Along Messiah" - enjoyed her complete enjoyment and smiles as the group played under Ivars direction. Julia and the orchestra were great. My only regret is that I live in Tacoma, WA and it seems you great folks don't get this far West. My biggest wish would be to attend a sing along or see Furiosi live and in concert. I am, however thankful for this website and cd's and dvd's. I wish you continued success.

You guys just get better and better. Every concert is better than the last one, and every photo is better than the one before. I can't wait to come hear you again in October.

Hello First I want to say how much I enjoy all of your concerts...your vitality and musicianship are a rare and marvellous combination. Several years ago (3?-4?) you played at one of your performances, a haunting and moving song from Jewish Spain...during the Inquisition I believe. I remember that it was the last song of the first or second half of the concert. Have you recorded it? Is it possible to tell me where I might find it? In any case thank you again for all of your creativity. 'happy Christmas and New Year. Sam

WOW! i just recently discovered your music when I borrowed a copy of Crazy from my local library and at first I thought someone had misfiled the CD when I cursorily glanced at the cover photo. Are you ever going to tour western Canada (specifically BC). I live on Vancouver Island in the Comox Valley and would definitely go to see you at one of our island venues (Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay, Port Theatre in Nanaimo or Royal Theatre in Victoria). Love your music, I will definitely seek out more. BRAVO!

Please (with the exception of Gabrielle) SHOW US YER INSTRUMENTS! Who made them, when, where, if original, what is their history, if reproductions, which instruments are they based on? Would it also be possible to include some vignettes from your research on your website, especially for those of us who are not in places where you give concerts. Thank you

Please please come to Victoria, we would love to see you! My kids play classical music and are so thrilled to see the way you perform it and make it come to life and breathe again with the air of our times.

I came upon your website following a music link, but I am certainly glad I did. Your music is a joy to listen to and you all perform with such passion and feeling. I am just an old man who enjoys classical music, and your interpretations make it that much more enjoyable. You all have a gift, never stop playing.

I heard your enjoyable interview on the CBC radio this morning. Black jazz musicians have long since stated: “Bach swings” which is entirely true. In lite of the sound of your music and interpretation one might extend that “Baroque swings,” then and now..?

Love the new promo shots, guys - and the tour pix are amazing (esp. the Chagall window and the train platform through the door offstage - Platform 9 3/4 anyone?). Looking forward to your first concert this season.

Dear "Furiosi", yesterday evening I had the great pleasure to be a witness of your concert in the monastery of Machern in Germany. Thanks for these astonishing performance and the good time you gave to all friends of classical baroque music. Best wishes to all of you, yours M. Weidert

It was a thrill to see you perform in Indianapolis! Your interpretations of all of the literature that you perform is refreshing, exhilarating and inspiring. You represent the Early Music community well - particularly with your performances of Baroque music, with its naughty nature! Performance practice at it's best!

I'd not heard of you until my wife gave me the very, very great gift of a CD of your "Crazy" album. I am stunned, amazed and moved. I am an instant fan on your fine musicianship alone. After reading a bit about you (and seeing your photos), what can I say? You are too cool for (my) words. You seem like the perfection of what I wanted to be while in college. I will somehow attend one of your concerts someday, but for whatever its worth: please come to California. Not just for my sake, but for California's sake. California needs you! With Admiration, Appreciation and Gratitude, Justin

Notre-Dame-de-Bonsecours is a wonderful concert space http://www.marguerite-bourgeoys.com/en/chapelle/historique.asp. Take the 360 degree tour! Thanks much for your work! Greg

Hi, heard you on ABC classic FM in Sydney last night. Suzanne from Crazy. Stunning, beautiful and please play it again. Came home bought it on iTunes. Have played it 3 times. Have watched 2 videos of yours Piangero and Suzanne, more beauty! Have you released other cds? If so are they available? Thank you for making my weekend. Are you ever likely to come to Australia? Must go Saturday morning chores are awaiting, again many thanks John

Hey Peoples, Wanted to reiterate what a nice time it was seeing you all and what a pleasure it was working with you. Now, a little embarrassing, but I've been jealous of everyone sporting their cool I Furiosi shirts and was wondering if you might be able to send one my way. I'd be happy to compensate any payment or shipping. They're just too cool. Later, Strider

Speaking on behalf of myself & Co. the concert a while ago was really, really splendiforus! even though that's not a word (you see, I enjoyed it so much I had to make up a word to describe how great it was.....but that's what you get from someone who puts "quotation marks" in the middle of her name.....)

Thank you for the special Pride performance. You've exploded so many of my prejudices, I mean about music and concerts. Like, I never knew till this performance that it's possible to enjoy a whole concert, of classical music, without being forced to sit through a couple of tedious modernistic pieces that some musicologist has decided will be "good for us." Like, not all soprano solists are 'screechy sopranos.' You even overcame my prejudice against audienceiparticipation gimmicks. And, Felix, not all parents who recommend their kid's music recitals to their friends are deafened by love; yours aren't.

I remember when our mutual friend Etai took me to a concert to see you perform many years ago... since then I have seen you all grow greater into the musicians that you are today!

Truly gifted.

Hello all, Gabrielle, we have seen you perform over the years with Arcady (and once at Calvin Presbyterian. Just recently we went to the Tafelmusik sing a long Messiah at we saw the musicians there; very recognizable (forgive me for not knowing your names right now; I have to go back to 'know us' for that!).
