The Aulos Ensemble -September 26

Aulos EnsembleWe celebrate the opening of the Series' 25th season with our old friends, the Aulos Ensemble, presented first in Boise in 1997, and still including Christopher Krueger, flute; Marc Schachman, oboe; Linda Quan, violin; Myron Lutzke, cello; and Arthur Haas, harpsichord; all playing period instruments with their special historical performance practices. Formed in 1973 by five graduates of the Juilliard School, the Aulos Ensemble was at the forefront of a movement that has captured the imagination of the American listening public.

The group's artistic intelligence, based on informed scholarly insight, along with an uncompromising standard of excellence, has resulted in invitations from virtually all of America's major chamber music presenters. Its performances have helped to create a new appreciation of the rich rewards of original instrument performance and have earned admiration from America's most respected critics, who call Aulos concerts "scintillating," "virtuosic," "rare and delightful," and "authentic baroque performance at its best."

This special concert is made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, which has also assisted the Boise State Department of Music in refurbishing its double-manual Flemish-style harpsichord, made in 1986 by Peter Fisk.
