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.

“there is probably no more inspirational musician working today” — Gramophone
