Notes & Reviews:

The Sebastians (www.sebastians.org) are a dynamic and vital musical ensemble specializing in music of the baroque and classical eras. Lauded as "everywhere sharp-edged and engaging" (The New York Times), the Sebastians have also been praised for their "well-thought-out articulation and phrasing" (Early Music Review) and "elegant string playing... immaculate in tuning and balance" (Early Music Today). Their début album Night Scenes from the Ospedale pairs four thrilling Vivaldi concerti from L'Estro Armonico with newly composed "night" interludes by Robert Honstein. In these companion pieces Honstein imagines "Night Scenes" from the Ospedale della Pietà where Vivaldi worked as performer, composer, and teacher. These evocative interludes comprise "a kind of music barely heard, melting into the stillness of empty rooms and dimly lit hallways" and exist in start juxtaposition with the bold, exuberant Vivaldi concerti.
