Elizabeth Blumenstock is a longtime concertmaster, soloist and director with the Bay Area’s Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and the American Bach Soloists; concertmaster of the International Handel Festival in Goettingen, Germany; and Artistic Director of the Baroque Music Festival, Corona del Mar. She is widely admired as a Baroque violinist of expressive eloquence. Ms Blumenstock plays a violin built by Andrea Guarneri in 1660, in Cremona, which is on generous loan to her from the Philharmonia Baroque Period Instrument Trust.
