Praised by the American Recorder Magazine for “superb improvisations;” lauded in The Winston-Salem Journal for “dazzling virtuosity;” applauded by The Baltimore Sun for a “cool concert, hot concept;” and hailed by numerous journals as “elegant,” “virtuosic,” and “inventive,” Harmonious Blacksmith combines the best of creative conceptual programming with the fire of virtuoso performing and improvising. Focusing on the connection between composition and improvisation in Renaissance and Baroque style music, this group provides a new spin on age-old genres.
