Dieterich Buxtehude: Master of Lübeck

“Once more, the Wildwood Consort delighted listeners with a beautifully paced and varied program.  The highlight of the program for many was the striking “Klag-lied”, a highly poignant and emotional piece, brilliantly captured by the instrumentalists and soprano Mel Downie Robinson.

Claudio Monteverdi: Selva Morale e Spirituale

“Thank you for a beautiful concert of Monteverdi. Lewis & Clark College was pleased to host you; my students and I were dazzled by the performance. Your expressive musicianship brought humor and poignancy to the music.”

“It was a wonderful concert last night. There was a feeling of reaching back in time and witnessing the music as a person present in the 1600’s. What shined most was the art and agility of the all the singers and instrumentalists.”

Louis-Nicolas Clérambault: Master of the Cantate Française

“What a joy to hear these masterworks of early vocal and chamber music repertoire with such a talented and sensitive team of musicians.”

Ethan Sperry, DMA, Portland State University, January 2012

 

“The Wildwood Consort’s performance at the University of Portland was polished and engaging.  These chamber musicians explored the intricacies of the French Baroque music of Clérambault with authority and charm in an intimate and collegial style.  It was especially exciting to hear repertoire that is rarely performed.”
