Q. What is Early Music performance, or historical performance?
A. We play on instruments from the time of the composers, and we use the

original music and playing techniques: it’s a special sound.
Q. Why are there no conductors?
A. Conductors weren’t invented until the 19th century; since we seek to

recreate a historical performance, the music is led from the keyboard or

violin, or the music is played as chamber music~or both 🙂

Q. What are period instruments or original instruments; how are they

different from modern instruments?
A. As instruments became modernized in the 19th century, builders and

players tended to focus on the volume of sound and the stability of tuning.

Modern steel strings replaced the older materials, and instruments were

often machine made. Historical instruments, built individually by hand and

with overall lighter construction, have extremely complex overtones—which

we find delightful. Modern instruments are of course perfectly suited to

more modern music.
Q. Why is the pitch lower, or higher?
A. Early Music performance uses many different pitches, and these pitches create different tone colors on the instruments. See https://goo.gl/pVBNAC
