SHCS Presents: ACRONYM (Baltimore Debut)

SHCS Presents: ACRONYM (Baltimore Debut)

One hundred years before Mozart and Beethoven, Vienna’s music scene was already on fire with stylus phantasticus, a genre combining Italian drama and Northern European formal complexity. ACRONYM, an “outstanding young early-music string ensemble” (The New Yorker), presents a feast of musical delights in the band’s Baltimore debut. ACRONYM’s 11 members perform on strings, violas da gamba, theorbo, and keyboards, bringing “gutsy, fresh explorations” (Early Music America) to these rare treasures.
