THE SEBASTIANS

THE SEBASTIANS

The Sebastians (www.sebastians.org) are a dynamic and vital musical ensemble specializing in music of the baroque and classical eras. Lauded as “everywhere sharp-edged and engaging” (The New York Times), the Sebastians have also been praised for their “well-thought-out articulation and phrasing” (Early Music Review) and “elegant string playing… immaculate in tuning and balance” (Early Music Today). I Care If You Listen praised the ensemble’s “beautifully-nuanced playing and thoughtful expressivity” in their début album, calling the recording a “technical and timbral tour-de-force.” This season features Venetian and Roman trio sonatas and concerti grossi; Bach’s six sonatas for violin and obbligato harpsichord and sonatas for violin and continuo; and, in collaboration with TENET Vocal Artists, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and Handel’s Messiah, in intimate, unconducted performances. The Sebastians are currently in residence at the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments.
