First introduced to Caramoor audiences in 2018’s Atalanta, soprano Sherezade Panthaki is an acknowledged star in the early-music world. With a lush and commanding voice, she remains “wonderfully agile, riding her rapid vibrato up and down passagework and trills with admirable fluency” (The Wall Street Journal). In this program featuring both instrumental and vocal pieces, Panthaki is joined by the Helicon ensemble. Recognized by The New York Times as “an important early music organization,” Helicon seeks to explore period chamber music at a high level.

“Panthaki’s voice is a force of nature and quite exceptional, as indeed is her remarkably accurate tuning and the evident ease with which she tossed off even the most difficult passages.”
— Kenneth DeLong, Calgary Herald

Praised as “Britain’s finest period violinist” (BBC Music Magazine), Rachel Podger has injected new life into the Baroque tradition. Her affinity for the Baroque began at an early age when she sought more from her modern studies and followed her curiosity to begin mastering the Baroque violin. She went on to co-found the period group Palladian Ensemble, was an early member of Floriegium, led The English Concert from 1997 to 2002, and in 2018, was named Gramophone’s ‘Artist of the Year.’ Rachel Podger’s passion for Baroque masterpieces shines through lifting the beauty of these works and the skill of their composers to the forefront.
