Taking its name from the Italian concitare (“to incite or provoke”), Concitato electrifies listeners with insightful interpretations of rarely performed repertoire, while redefining the way audiences hear the more well-known works of the Baroque canon. Concitato tastefully combines the latest discoveries in musicological research with cutting-edge training. Founded in 2008 by violinist Joan Plana, this trio of dynamic young players—violinist Joan Plana, cellist Ezra Seltzer, and harpsichordist Jeffrey Grossman—performs a vast repertoire of diverse instrumental music from the baroque era. Concitato’s flexibility allows for the inclusion of additional musical collaborators for larger ensemble or vocal works. After a stunning Chicago début in November 2008, Concitato has performed concerts in Montreal, Cleveland, and New York. In 2009, Concitato was named a finalist of the York International Early Music Competition.

All three members of Concitato are current students in Juilliard’s Historical Performance program which offers a comprehensive, full-scholarship course of study in period-instrument performance for graduate-level musicians. With an emphasis on 17th- and 18th-century music, the program brings together some of the most prominent period-instrument performers, scholars, and teachers in the world.
