Experience imaginative reveries as NYBI presents some of the most evocative music from the early 18th Century. Dramatic overtures, concerti grossi, and a full-blown battle piece will immerse you in images of passion, duplicity, warfare, and valiant death. NYBI’s historically informed sound serves to further enhance the magical encounter, as only music played on period instruments can.

New York Baroque Incorporated is a conductorless orchestra of young players of baroque instruments in New York City, bringing the city vital, informed, and fresh performances of the great repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries, and creating a vibrant landscape for collaborations between historical performance and living composers. Lauded by The New York Times for its “do-it-yourself spirit,” NYBI is founded and self-managed by alumni of Juilliard’s Historical Performance Program.
The players of NYBI include the winners of the Early Music America/Naxos Recording Competition, Audience Award winners of EMA Baroque Performance Competition, finalists of the 2012 EMA Baroque Performance Competition, the York Early Music Competition, and recipients of the Jacob K. Javits and Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships. Members have recorded for Naxos, Sony and Decca, and have appeared at festivals from Aspen to Marlboro to Saito Kinen. Current and former teaching positions held by NYBI musicians include Temple University, Connecticut College, Lucy Moses School, Shepherd School Preparatory Program, Stony Brook University, and Concervatorio V. Bellini of Palermo.
Highlights of the 2013-14 season includes appearance on Salon/Sanctuary Concerts, Music Before 1800, and a tour to Florida.
