San Francisco Performances TENET Vocal Artists/Quicksilver

The New York based early music vocal ensemble TENET Vocal Artists will collaborate with the Baroque instrumental ensemble, Quicksilver, led by violinist Robert Mealy, for a program of 17th century Italian Baroque music, featuring Claudio Monteverdi, one of that period’s envelope-pushing contemporary composers. This is both TENET Vocal Artists and Quicksilver's SF Performances debut.

Renowned for their interpretations of Renaissance and Baroque repertoire, TENET Vocal Artists’ distinguished soloists have been praised for their pristine one-voice-to-a-part singing “to an uncanny degree of precision” (The Boston Globe).

“Revered like rock stars within the early music scene” (New York Times), Quicksilver brings together leading historically-informed performers in North America today. Described as “drop dead gorgeous with a wonderful interplay of timbres,” (Early Music America) and praised as “irresistible” (Fanfare Magazine), Quicksilver vibrantly explores the rich chamber music repertoire from the early modern period to the High Baroque.

One of America’s most prominent historical string players, Robert Mealy has been praised for his “imagination, taste, subtlety, and daring” (Boston Globe). A frequent soloist and orchestral leader, Mealy is principal concertmaster at Trinity Wall Street and the Orchestra Director of the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra. He has also led the Mark Morris Dance Group Music Ensemble in performances here and in Moscow, accompanied Renee Fleming on the David Letterman Show, and recorded and toured a wide variety of repertoire with many distinguished ensembles both here and in Europe.
