The Muffat Collective comprises four period instrument specialists that are extremely passionate about performing chamber music from the 17th and 18th century. All top graduates from The Royale Conservatoire of The Hague and Utrecht, the four members have returned to Australia after extensive experience playing with some of Europe's leading Baroque orchestras. The Collective would like to give you a genuine and moving experience by sharing with you incredibly rare and often unperformed works by forgotten masters; music that is full of vitality, energy and emotions that speak to us now, as much as they did in the past.
