This first rate band brings baroque music alive like no other with their vivid imagination, fancy fiddling and musical humor. To quote Early Music America, “Acronym has fun!” They return by popular demand, having astonished our audiences with their wit and spine-tingling charisma. Their program is titled a “Cabinet of Curiosities – Baroque beyond Handel and Correlli”.

In seventeenth-century Germany, a Wunderkammer (typically translated as “cabinet of curiosities”) was a type of private museum collection in the home of an aristocrat. Always in search of the most fascinating music from this era, ACRONYM has unearthed a large number of previously unrecorded manuscript sonatas written by long-forgotten composers. Many of these composers’ works will surprise the listener with their innovative rhythms and harmonics–extraordinary for their time.
