My work in early music

For those of you who don’t know about my other professional career, the “Anglistenchor” of the University of Heidelberg and my instrumental ensemble “Syntagma” are performing the second of two concerts under the title “Strike the viol” in Heidelberg this Sunday, July 27, 7pm at the Peterskirche. If you want to hear Baroque music like you’ve never heard it before, come by! Tickets can be purchased on-line or directly at the concert. You can see a short interview with me and the conductor and a member of the choir here. This time the composers are JS Bach, Purcell, and their contemporaries.

…and now back to science…
