The Aberdeen Early Music Collective is a flexible ensemble, formed with musicians from Aberdeen, Basel, Glasgow, London, Manchester, and Montréal. We perform on historical instruments, and invite established as well as up-and-coming musicians to join us in performances of repertoire ranging from the 15th century to the 18th century. We frequently collaborate with scholars to showcase the fruits of recent researches in musicology, such as new editions or performance practice insights.
Regulars include: Frauke Jürgensen, soprano/dance; Amanda Babington, violin/recorder; David Smith, recorder/keyboard; Caroline Ritchie, viola da gamba/cello; Claire Babington, cello; Ralph Stelzenmüller, keyboard. Recent guests have included: Grant Golding, natural trumpet, Karim Nasr, historical woodwinds; Jamie Akers, theorbo; and Alex McCartney, guitar/theorbo.
