It was sheer joy in the vibrancy and virtuosity of baroque music that brought together the musicians of Parnassi Musici in 1990 and, since then, has inspired the ensemble to build its repertoire around German and Italian trio sonatas. Time and time again, Parnassi Musici surprises its audiences with its novel programs and superb musical standards. Their own transcription of the Goldberg Variations in honor of the 250th anniversary of Bach’s death, for instance, allows the listener to forget that the work was intended for the harpsichord—and has nonetheless had the label “authentic” bestowed upon it by the press. This group never ceases to amaze experts, audiences, and producers with their choice of underestimated composers and pieces. They often premiere rare pieces which are “encyclopedic” in character. They have helped bring composers like Buchner, Becker, Tibaldi, and others back into the limelight. “… the ensemble plays with flexible unity of purpose, imagination, and clear affection for the music.” (American Record Guide)
