A dynamic early music quartet composed of members from the élite inaugural class of Juilliard's ground-breaking program in historical performance, PHOENIXtail presents innovative concert experiences celebrating primarily music of the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. All four virtuosi have distinguished solo résumés and perform regularly across the United States as well as overseas. Featured last season by Music Before 1800 in its new series, MB1800 Hell's Kitchen at the DiMenna Center, PHOENIXtail is now in its third season.
This young group played as through on fire, befitting its name, with superb technique, a lush sound, and an emphatic style, the performers appear to live the music. Early Music America (pdf)
