ABOUT

New York Baroque Incorporated (NYBI) is a conductorless orchestra on period instruments in New York City, bringing vital, informed, and fresh performances of a wide range of 17th and 18th-century repertoire, and creating a vibrant landscape for collaborations between historical performance and living composers. Since its creation, NYBI has received critical praise for its energy, virtuosity and entrepreneurship, and was lauded by The New York Times for its "do-it-yourself spirit.” Highlights of season 2016-17 include the modern-day premiere of Santa Rosalia (1687), one of four surviving oratorios by Bonaventura Aliotti.
The players of NYBI include winners of the Early Music America/Naxos Recording Competition, Audience Award winners of EMA Baroque Performance Competition, finalists of the York Early Music Competition, and recipients of the Jacob K. Javits and Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships. Members have recorded for Avie, Naxos, Sony and Decca, and have appeared at festivals from Marlboro to Mostly Mozart to Boston Early Music Festival. Teaching positions held by NYBI musicians include The Juilliard School, University of Minnesota, Stony Brook University, Temple University, University of North Carolina, University of Delaware, and Peabody Institute.
