ARTEK, founded by director Gwendolyn Toth in 1986, has gained a reputation for exciting, dramatic performances of baroque music. Here you see excerpts from their popular "I'll Never See the Stars Again" program, a post-modern semi-staged operatic interpretation of madrigals by Claudio Monteverdi.


GEMS is a non-profit corporation that supports and promotes the artists and organizations in New York devoted to early music— the music of the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and early Classical periods.
