“He is one of the most exciting and engaging Baroque violinists in the business. Bold, expressive and welcoming of vibrato . . . mercurial brilliance . . . this is top-league stuff.”—Gramophone
Specializing in the musical repertoire from the Renaissance to the classical period, Riccardo Minasi is one of the leading Baroque violinists of today and among the most sought-after concertmasters in Europe by conductors such as Jordi Savall for Le Concert des Nations. He regularly performs all over Europe, North and South America, and Asia in the most prestigious halls such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Konzerthaus and Musikverein in Vienna, among many others. In 2007 Minasi founded the chamber ensemble Musica Antiqua Roma, with whom he plays the hidden gems of 17th- and 18th-century Italian composers.
