ARS LYRICA HOUSTON

Founded in 1998 by harpsichordist and conductor Matthew Dirst, Ars Lyrica Houston is a group of primarily Houston-area musicians who perform Baroque music using period instruments. Ars Lyrica’s distinctive programming favours little-known dramatic and chamber works that merit revival, and its home series “sets the agenda for imaginative periodinstrument programming in Houston”, according to the Houston Chronicle. Ars Lyrica’s numerous premières include the first American performance of Handel’s Il Trionfo del Tempo e della Verità and local premières of Jacopo Peri’s Euridice, John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, Handel’s Flavio, and Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, among other works. These pioneering efforts have attracted international attention, and Ars Lyrica has begun touring with select chamber programmes.
