Taking its name from the Italian concitare ("to incite or provoke"), Concitato electrifies listeners with insightful interpretations of rarely performed repertoire, while redefining the way audiences hear the more well-known works of the Baroque canon. Concitato combines the latest discoveries in musicological research with cutting-edge training.

Founded in 2008 by violinist Joan Plana, this trio of dynamic young players—violinist Joan Plana, cellist Ezra Seltzer, and harpsichordist Jeffrey Grossman—performs a vast repertoire of diverse instrumental music from the baroque era.

All three members of Concitato are current students in Juilliard’s Historical Performance program, which offers a comprehensive, full-scholarship course of study in period-instrument performance for graduate-level musicians. With an emphasis on 17th- and 18th-century music, the program brings together some of the most prominent period-instrument performers, scholars, and teachers in the world.

Expect an afternoon filled with exciting interpretations of rarely performed repertoire as well as tasteful, fresh takes on well-known works.
