Philadelphia-based Tempesta di Mare has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence on the local, national, and international cultural maps with trailblazing productions of baroque orchestral, choral, operatic, and chamber music since its founding in 1996. In 2002, Tempesta launched its Greater Philadelphia Concert Series, hailed by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “a major addition to the local musical landscape,” with concerts that possess “off-the-grid chic.” It became the first American baroque ensemble to join the British label Chandos with its 2004 world premiere release of the Weiss lute concerti. A second Chandos disc, with Julianne Baird, is underway for 2006. Past touring engagements include the Prague Spring International Music Festival, the Oregon Bach Festival, and the Amherst Early Music Festival. Their concerts can be heard nationally on National Public Radio .
