Quadriga Consort (AT)

Ever since the Austrian ensemble Quadriga Consort was founded by harpsichordist arranger and composer Nikolaus Newerkla, it has made a name for itself playing early music which defies being pigeonholed as either ‘early music’, ‘classical’ or ‘pop’. With its first programme Ground (CD 2003, Label Harp, Berlin) the Quadriga Consort already surprised audiences with uncompromising interpretations and unsuspected freshness beyond any categorization.
