Artist Portrait

Sonnerie

Band, *1982
Classical

Ensemble formed in 1982 as a trio of violin (Monica Huggett), viola da gamba (Sarah Cunningham) and harpsichord (Mitzi Meyerson) specializing in baroque chamber music, it evolved into a more flexible group, allowing it to perform repertoire such as Bach cantatas and concerti, and extend its limits to classical, even early romantic composers. It has now returned to the trio format with Monica Huggett (director and violin), Emilia Benjamin (viola da gamba) and James Johnstone (3) (harpsichord).
