Wonderchamber: A Cabinet of Musical Curiosities from the 17th Century
Rulers and aristocrats competed to fill their cabinets of wonder” with expensive curiosities: one-of-a-kind ethnographic, archaeological, or natural objects. With the same sense of curiosity in the pursuit of the unique, 17th-century composers created musical wonders that stretched the limits of harmonic convention—evident in compositions by Castello, Biber, Weckmann, and Uccelini.

“Quicksilver signifies something unpredictable and swiftly responsive. It’s the perfect name for an ensemble that revels in music of the highest quality … with the players spinning long lines colored by delicately applied ornaments, and altering dynamics and phrasing….” —Gramophone
