Share this event:

Harpsichordist Byron Schenkman and Baroque violinist Ingrid Matthews perform a program of virtuosic music by Giovanni Battista Fontana, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Isabella Leonarda, Bartolomeo de Selma y Salaverde, Domenico Scarlatti, and Francesco Veracini.

Byron Schenkman has recorded more than thirty albums of 17th- and 18th-century repertoire, including recordings on historical instruments from the National Music Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He received the Erwin Bodky Award from the Cambridge Society for Early Music. Schenkman made his New York recital debut on modern piano in 2009, and his playing was described in The New York Times as "sparkling," "elegant," and "insightful." He is a member of the new period instrument ensemble Gut Reaction and has been a featured guest with the Chameleon Arts Ensemble of Boston, the Daedalus Quartet, the Northwest Sinfonietta, Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Philharmonia Northwest, and the Portland Baroque Orchestra. He also appears frequently in recital with violinist Ingrid Matthews, with whom he co-founded the Seattle Baroque Orchestra in 1994. Schenkman is a graduate of the New England Conservatory and received his master's degree with honors in performance from the Indiana University School of Music. He currently teaches at Seattle University and Cornish College of the Arts. In 2012 he also served as guest lecturer in harpsichord and fortepiano at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.

Ingrid Matthews served as Music Director of Seattle Baroque Orchestra from its inception in 1994 until 2013, and is well-established as one of today's most respected Baroque violinists. Since winning first prize in the prestigious Erwin Bodky International Competition for Early Music in 1989, she has performed extensively around the world, appearing as soloist, guest director, or concertmaster with many of today's leading early music ensembles, including the New York Collegium, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Musica Angelica (Los Angeles), New Trinity Baroque (Atlanta), the Bach Sinfonia (Washington DC), and many others. Among the most-recorded Baroque violinists of her generation, Matthews has won international critical acclaim for a discography that ranges from the earliest solo violin repertoire through the great Sonatas and Partitas of J.S. Bach. This recording was described as "the finest complete set of these works I have heard" by the reviewer for Third Ear's Classical Music Listening Companion. Matthews is on the faculty of the Cornish College of the Arts, and in 2011 and 2012 was engaged to lead Oberlin College's new Baroque Orchestra program. She taught Baroque violin at UCLA from 1998 to 2002, and has held teaching residencies at Indiana University, the University of Washington, the University of Toronto, and at many of the leading early music workshops. Matthews is a graduate of Indiana University, where she studied with Josef Gingold and Stanley Ritchie.
