Quince is a new string band devoted to the delightful and varied 16th- and 17th-century string music, particularly five-part ensemble music with multiple violas. Formed in 2007, Quince brings together the talents of some of this country's finest players, who have distinguished themselves as members of Chatham Baroque, Concerto Incognito, A Far Cry, Foundling, Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra, New York Collegium, and Washington Bach Consort. Quince's repertory ranges from Renaissance dance tunes and consort music through Italianate sonatas and concerted music with voices, to music for the French Baroque theater, from the Lachrimae of Dowland, and the stylus phantasticus of Biber and Rosenmüller, to the wit of Charpentier's collaboration with Molière. Performing with and without continuo, as an instrumental ensemble and in concert with voices, Quince offers a variety of programs for 5 to 12 musicians.
