Cantica Nova: Discoveries from Uppsala’s Düben Manuscripts
In 1732, Gustaf Düben, the last of his family to serve as hovkapellmästare at the Swedish Court, gave his collection to Uppsala University. This trove contains 1,800 works by famous and obscure composers. ACRONYM, ever dedicated to finding repertory on the wild side, performs sonatas and cantatas by Capricornus, Schmelzer, Carissimi, and others. Founded in 2010, the ensemble delights with its vivacious, heartfelt style.
Post-concert Q and A
“The playing Sunday stood out for its gusto and vitality. There was an utter lack of mannerism or curatorial preciousness…. ACRONYM took to all the music with verve, playing with excellent communication and unanimity.” —New York Classical Review
