Biography

Infusion Baroque draws new audiences to early music through a truly captivating concert experience, deftly combining seasoned musicianship with theatrical elements. Playing on historical instruments, the four women of Infusion Baroque enthrall audiences with their creative and interactive programming.

Following the critical success of their first CD, 1747, Infusion Baroque's second CD was released on LEAF music in November 2018. Kreüsser presents six elegant and uplifiting quintettos by a new discovery - 18th century composer Georg Anton Kreüsser.

Programmes and projects

Women made their mark on baroque music not only as muses, but also as virtuoso performers and composers. Mozart wrote his famous sonata K454 for the Mantuan virtuosa Regina Strinasacchi, while Vivaldi composed most of his vast musical output for the incredibly talented women of the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice. None other than Casanova was smitten by cellist Henriette de Schnetzmann's impromptu rendition of a concerto by Antonio Vandini. And women such as Ana Bon, Élisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre and Barbara Strozzi were acclaimed performers of their own compositions. Infusion Baroque presents an all-female tour-de-force celebrating the talent and prowess of women musicians throughout the ages!

Infusion Baroque invites you to investigate the true murder of violinist-composer Jean-Marie Leclair, found murdered in his home in Paris on October 23, 1764. Despite a thorough investigation and a plethora of suspects, no one was ever charged with the crime. Was it the composer’s estranged wife? A jealous colleague? Or something more sinister? Learn the details of the original investigation while enjoying a sumptuous program of music by Leclair and his contemporaries, and get to the bottom of Who Killed Leclair!

This programme is also offered in an interactive game version.

In addition to his tremendous achievements as a composer and musician, Johann Sebastian Bach is famous for having fathered many children, several of whom went on to have successful musical careers. This program explores the different musical personalities of the sons of Bach: the enigmatic Wilhelm Friedmann; the inventive and sensitive Carl Philipp Emanuel; and the cheerfully conservative Johann Christoph Friedrich. This program also includes music by “Papa Bach” himself and Georg Philip Telemann, who was the godfather of C.P.E. Bach.
