Ensemble Mirable (Mirable - old French, meaning astonishing,
strong, powerful) is a San Francisco Bay Area based period instrument ensemble
that originated in 1996 at Indiana University's Early Music Institute where
Joanna Blendulf and JungHae Kim were then studying.
Since its inception, the
group's focus has been on exploring the many variations in continuo performance
across different baroque styles and on bringing the music of lesser known
composers to the public's attention. Mirable has built an impressive reputation
over the ensuing years, earning awards from Early Music America and critical
acclaim for performances to enthusiastic audiences in San Francisco and
throughout the United States.
Over the past decade, in addition to live performances, Mirable has been engaged
in producing a series of high quality compact disc recordings that now includes
Triemer Six Cello Sonatas, The Virginalists, Conversations Galantes, D'Anglebert Pieces de Clavecin, 1689
Paris, and Influenza Italiana.
