SHIRLEY HUNT

SHIRLEY HUNT

 

Praised by The Strad as “stylish and accomplished,” Shirley Hunt brings fierce imagination and integrity to the music of the Renaissance, Baroque, and contemporary eras on the baroque cello and viola da gamba. Ms. Hunt has performed and recorded with the nation's leading period instrument ensembles including Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Musica Angelica, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Bach Collegium San Diego, and Mercury (Houston). She performs regularly at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Jurassic Technology, where she is an artist in residence. Early Music America calls Ms. Hunt's recent CD, J.S. Bach Suites & Sonatas Volume One, “a fine debut and one with promise for future projects.” Facts & Arts noted her “soulful renditions,” “high-wire interpretations,” and “resonant, singing tone that stays in the mind.” Originally from Portland, Oregon, Ms. Hunt was born into a musical family and is the younger sister of the late mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson.
