Cambridge Concentus

Cambridge Concentus performs vocal, orchestral, and chamber works of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The group was founded on the ideal of bringing a fresh perspective to the performance of familiar repertoire, and our performers are drawn from a new generation of early-music specialists committed to infusing their energetic performance style with the fruits of recent scholarship. The Musical Intelligencer recently wrote: “this concert will emblazon Cambridge Concentus in my mind,” and: “the lightness of playing once again caught me off-guard. Wonderful!” Cambridge Concentus, under the direction of their co-artistic advisor Joshua Rifkin, recently embarked upon a four-concert tour of Japan where a critic hailed their rendering of JS Bach's St. Matthew Passion as "an epoch-making performance."
