Genesis Baroque is a vibrant Melbourne-based period instrument ensemble founded by Artistic Director, Jennifer Kirsner, and directed by renowned violinist Lucinda Moon. The ensemble comprises some of Australia’s finest historically-informed performers, and aims to explore the spontaneity, imagination, and richness of music from the 17th and 18th century. Moon brings her wealth of experience and energy to the ensemble, crafting a refined, emotive, and expressive approach to the repertoire, and providing audiences with deeply moving, engaging performance experiences.
The ensemble collaborates with renowned soloists based locally, interstate and overseas, and has a particular focus on providing a platform for Australian soloists, both local and expatriate, to perform for Victorian audiences.
Genesis Baroque is a rich addition to the Melbourne’s diverse and lively arts scene – a distinguished, locally-based period chamber orchestra at the forefront of the genre.
