From the intricate Italian and English fantasies of the 15th and 16th centuries to the most spectacular French and German showpieces of the 18th century, Duo Maresenne treats its audiences to a variety of music for some fascinating and elegant instruments – the lute, theorbo, viola da gamba and early guitars. Named for the great French Baroque composer and gambist Marin Marais, Duo Maresienne explores the musical spirit of Renaissance and Baroque Europe. Carol Lewis and Olav Chris Henriksen appear individually and together, and performing with internationally acclaimed ensembles including the Boston Camerata, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Hespèrion. In June 2017 they were among the performers appearing with countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo in a concert at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum featuring works of composer Nico Muhly. They have recorded on Astrée, EMI, Harmonia Mundi, Nonesuch, Erato, Centaur, Decca, Telarc and Koch International. Daniel Pinkham’s “Sagas” (1998) was composed for Duo Maresienne.
