Description

Mélomanie—Donna Fournier, viola da gamba; Ismar Gomes, cello; Kimberly Reighley, flute;  Tracy Richardson, harpsichord; and  Christof Richter, violin—has delighted audiences throughout the East Coast and internationally with masterful performances of baroque and early classic treasures along with innovative collaborations with guest performers and composers.

The baroque/contemporary ensemble is known for its provocative pairings of early and contemporary works. The ensemble’s performances of baroque and early classical music are historically informed and played on period instruments. In its contemporary practice, Me?lomanie has collaborated with composers and guest artists in premieres of over fifty works, many featuring distinctly non-baroque elements—percussion, guitar, sitar, recorded sound, jazz ensemble, and spoken-word urban poetry. Mélomanie was founded in 1993 by co-artistic directors and ensemble members, Kimberly Reighley and Tracy Richardson.
