New Trinity Baroque ansambl
Ansambl i barokni orkestar New Trinity Baroque, etablirani vodeći ansambl za ranu muziku u SAD-u, od nedavno je priznat i kod nas. Osnovan je 1998. godine u Londonu, a prateći svog osnivača, Predraga Gostu, poslednjih dvadeset godina bio je baziran u Atlanti, SAD. Međutim tokom proteklih pet godina može se reći da učestalije koncertira u našoj zemlji. Od samog početka okupljao je međunarodne umetnike iz različitih krajeva sveta i sarađivao sa mnogim poznatim umetnicima, kao što su sopran Evelyn Tubb, barokni violinisti John Holloway, Florian Deuter i Ilia Korol, blok flautistkinja Marion Vebruggen, čembalista Steven Devine i drugi. Nastupao je u Engleskoj, Finskoj, Hrvatskoj, Srbiji, Švedskoj i SAD-u na festivalima kao što su: Piccolo Spoleto festival u Čarlstonu, Bostonski festival rane muziku, Festival rane muzike u Amherstu, Festival Sastammala Gregoriana u Finskoj, Varaždinske barokne večeri, Korkyra Baroque u Hrvatskoj i beogradski Festival rane muzike. Ansambl je objavio 10 kompakt diskova – poslednji album sa duhovnim kantatama Dietricha Buxtehudea izdat je protekle jeseni.

New Trinity Baroque ensamble
Hailed by the critics as “Atlanta’s most adventurous early music ensemble” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), New Trinity Baroque is recognized as one of the leading early music ensembles today. Founded by Predrag Gosta in London in 1998, NTB was initially established as an ensemble of international musicians, and they continue to maintain this presence through collaborations with U.S. and international artists: past soloists include soprano Evelyn Tubb, recorder player Marion Verbruggen, violinists Ingrid Matthews, Florian Deuter, Bojan Cicic and John Holloway, harpsichordist Steven Devine, and others. Each season, the ensemble presents over thirty concerts and educational events in Atlanta and other cities throughout the U.S. and in Europe, performing on period instruments of the 17th and 18th centuries. The group’s repertoire ranges from chamber to orchestral, from cantatas to operas, and its styles from Renaissance to Classical. New Trinity Baroque’s concerts are consistently highly praised. Performances from the past include several Southeastern U.S. and Southern Europe premieres, such as Monteverdi’s “Vespers” of 1610, Handel’s “Gloria”, Bach’s “Christmas Oratorio”, Corelli’s Concerti Grossi, Vivaldi’s “L’Estro Armonico” Concertos, Pergolesi’s “Stabat Mater”, Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” and Divertimenti for Strings, as well as operas such as Purcell’s „Dido and Aeneas„, Monteverdi’s „L’Orfeo“ and „The Coronation of Poppea„, etc. NTB is also an active recording ensemble with almost a dozen CDs to its credit. NTB’s members regularly present lectures, educational events and masterclasses. The ensemble was an Affiliate Ensemble at Georgia State University’s School of Music since 2003, and the Ensemble-in-Residence at Oxford College of Emory University since 2004. The group is also the Ensemble-in-Residence at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta for over 10 years, which is its main performing venue. New Trinity Baroque has toured England, Finland, Sweden, Serbia and Croatia, appearing at festivals such as Korkyra Baroque, the Belgrade Early Music Festival, Sastamala Gregoriana festival in Finland and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, Sout Carolina.
