    The Boston-based ensemble Cambridge Concentus performs the vocal and orchestral repertoire of the seventeenth and eighteenth century. Its members feel that the performance of this music, despite being such a standard part of our repertoire, warrants a less standard approach. The performers of Cambridge Concentus are drawn from a new generation of early-music musicians committed to infusing recent scholarship with an energetic performance style. It is with this performance ideal that the ensemble performs the classic seventeenth and eighteenth-century works to critical acclaim. The Musical Intelligencer recently wrote: “this concert will emblazon Cambridge Concentus in my mind,” while another lauded: “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 J. S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion as "an epoch-making performance."
