Suzie LeBlanc and a Man named Quantz

At a time when music from the great Romantic Age struggles to retain its place in the public's affections, compositions written in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries continue to flourish. Why is this? Suzie LeBlanc, born in Acadia, fell in love with the Baroque early in life. Now an international star, the charismatic soprano provides convincing evidence for the popularity of Early Music in company with lutenist Stephen Stubbs, countertenor Daniel Taylor and members of Montreal's Arion Ensemble.
