The vast majority of the music we perform in Tafelmusik is from Europe in the seventeenth to the early nineteenth centuries, a world dominated by royalty, birthright, and the rigid definition of society by class. We are, in all sorts of ways, trying to both understand that time, aesthetically, culturally, and socially, and also make that music relevant to the world that we live in today.

Leading up to Elisa Citterio's debut as Tafelmusik's new Music Director, we sat down with Elisa for a short Q&A so we all could get to know her better.
