Building on the success of two prototype concerts in Amsterdam under the leadership of Artistic Director Carlo Diaz, the brand new experimental baroque orchestra Stile Nu makes its Chicago debut. They enter the scene with a bespoke collection of fragmentary and anonymous 18th-century notation from archives in the UK, Italy and the US in a concert that questions how much of historically-informed performance actually belongs to the past and how much of it we invent in the present.
Stile Nu is the product of a collaboration between local and international performers, composers and artistic researchers associated with ensembles including the Lyric Opera Orchestra, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, ACRONYM Ensemble, Haymarket Opera and Ugly Pug as well as universities and research centers including Leiden University, the Orpheus Institute, Northwestern University and Indiana University. Through a union of compositional innovation and historical imagination, Stile Nu generates new music that belongs entirely to the past.
