Works in Context: Female Composers of the 17th Century

Praised as “remarkable” and “superb” by The New Yorker, Sonnambula is a historical-informed ensemble that brings to light unknown music for various combinations of early instruments with the lush sound of the viol at the core. Sonnambula held the position of Ensemble in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2018–2019, where they designed a site-specific series at The Cloisters Museum. They were the first historically-informed ensemble to hold this position, which is more typically given to a string quartet. Learn more at www.sonnambula.org
