THE ENSEMBLE: Formed in 1973 by five Juilliard graduates, THE AULOS ENSEMBLE was at the forefront of a movement that was to capture the imagination of the American listening public. In 1978 with the release of their recording, "Masterpieces of the High Baroque", AULOS' reputation for exhilarating performances informed with scholarly insight was firmly established. In those groundbreaking years, the group's innovative programming featured a blend of flute, oboe, violin, cello, and harpsichord, later adding a viola da gamba. With its conservatory based training, Aulos brought an uncompromising standard of excellence in performance that resulted in invitations from virtually all of this country's major chamber music presenters. Now, in its 4th decade, AULOS continues to explore new projects and develop outlets for its music-making.
MTSU QUOTE: "The Aulos Ensemble is not only one of the leading ensembles to perform on original instruments – but through their longevity, they are one of the ‘originals,’ as well. Their performances are always full of good-natured vitality and a level of artistry that speaks directly to the heart. This will be a performance that concert-goers will find exciting and memorable." – Dr. George Riordan, Director, MTSU School of Music
MEDIA QUOTE: "The players of New York's Aulos Ensemble were fluid singers all, their lines never losing clarity or shape, always sounding flexible and spontaneous. This was authentic Baroque performance at its best." - The New York Times
