Night Music | chamber ensemble
Night Music, directed by Heather Miller Lardin and Steven Zohn, is a Philadelphia-based chamber ensemble dedicated to performing music of the Revolutionary era (roughly 1760 to 1850) on period instruments. Its musicians are among the foremost players specializing in historically-informed performance in the US, holding leadership positions in many prominent ensembles such as Philadelphia’s Tempesta di Mare, Bach Collegium and Franklin Quartet, and, farther afield, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, the Handel & Haydn Society, the Trinity Wall Street Baroque Orchestra, Kleine Kammermusik, NYS Baroque, and the Washington Bach Consort. Night Music’s repertory ranges from duos and trios, to large-scale chamber works combining strings and winds, to concertos, cantatas and concert arias. Recent programs have featured works by Boccherini, Beethoven, Brahms, Farrenc, Haydn, Kraus, F. Mendelssohn, Mozart and Salieri.
