As an online festival taking place around 21 March, the EMD Festival offers seven concerts proposed by the members of the European Network of Early Music. Every year, the programme encompasses early music in all its diversity: from solo to opera, from a few minutes of music to a complete work, we select for you the best of early music, to celebrate Early Music Day with your favorite artists and discover you net favourite pieces!
The concerts are broadcast in partnership with Total Baroque, and accompanied live by the artists: to enjoy the experience, just click on the link!

The video and live chat will be available on this page on 24 March at 8pm.


American Cellist, Steuart Pincombe, is one of the high-profile artist of his generation: He is committed both to Early music on the Baroque cello and contemporary music on an electric instrument and performs regularly in the USA and in all over Europe. As an interpreter of the popular Bach suites, Steuart was invited to the Thuringia Bach Festival in 2020 and 2021, but both had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. No reason to depair: Instead of a performance in Thuringia, Steuart is no inviting to a concert in his American homeland, in the breathtaking nature of Fairgrove, Missouri.
