WOW! i just recently discovered your music when I borrowed a copy of Crazy from my local library and at first I thought someone had misfiled the CD when I cursorily glanced at the cover photo. Are you ever going to tour western Canada (specifically BC). I live on Vancouver Island in the Comox Valley and would definitely go to see you at one of our island venues (Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay, Port Theatre in Nanaimo or Royal Theatre in Victoria). Love your music, I will definitely seek out more. BRAVO!

Please (with the exception of Gabrielle) SHOW US YER INSTRUMENTS! Who made them, when, where, if original, what is their history, if reproductions, which instruments are they based on?
Would it also be possible to include some vignettes from your research on your website, especially for those of us who are not in places where you give concerts.

We are quite privileged to have such a talented group in our midst. Keep the series going!

Fascinating blend of musical styles. Know Julie and Aislinn from Tafelmusik where they always shine. Look forward to seeing you play.
May 11, 2011
I just couldn't leave your site before telling you that I actually enjoyed the quality info you offer to your visitors? Really nice site!
I was randomly checking a church for booking, I talked to Gabrielle, little did I know i was talking to a girl with the breath taking voice of baroque angels!
Great ensable! great music, i will come to you future programs for sure :)

Please please come to Victoria, we would love to see you! My kids play classical music and are so thrilled to see the way you perform it and make it come to life and breathe again with the air of our times.
August 20, 2010
I came upon your website following a music link, but I am certainly glad I did. Your music is a joy to listen to and you all perform with such passion and feeling. I am just an old man who enjoys classical music, and your interpretations make it that much more enjoyable. You all have a gift, never stop playing.

I liked "The Noiseless Foot Of Time" concert from the Calvin Presbyterian Church, Toronto, Saturday, March 20, 2010!! Congratulations, Steve.
September 28, 2009
Love the new promo shots, guys - and the tour pix are amazing (esp. the Chagall window and the train platform through the door offstage - Platform 9 3/4 anyone?).
Looking forward to your first concert this season.

yesterday evening I had the great pleasure to be a witness of your concert in the monastery of Machern in Germany. Thanks for these astonishing performance and the good time you gave to all friends of classical baroque music.
Best wishes to all of you,
yours M. Weidert

It was a thrill to see you perform in Indianapolis! Your interpretations of all of the literature that you perform is refreshing, exhilarating and inspiring. You represent the Early Music community well - particularly with your performances of Baroque music, with its naughty nature! Performance practice at it's best!

I'd not heard of you until my wife gave me the very, very great gift of a CD of your "Crazy" album. I am stunned, amazed and moved. I am an instant fan on your fine musicianship alone. After reading a bit about you (and seeing your photos), what can I say? You are too cool for (my) words. You seem like the perfection of what I wanted to be while in college.
I will somehow attend one of your concerts someday, but for whatever its worth: please come to California. Not just for my sake, but for California's sake. California needs you!
With Admiration, Appreciation and Gratitude,

Saw your CD in the soon to close Virgin music store in downtown San Francisco. When will it be available on your website?
I just found your page while listening to one of your performances of Vivaldi on the radio show Sunday Baroque. You're great. Thank you for this wonderful music.
December 5, 2008
Where can I buy your new CD "Crazy". There seems to be no info about it on your web site. I'm located in Ottawa and I had a chance to see your concert at the Chamber Music festival. Really enjoyed it.
November 7, 2008
Excellent musicianship. If I can ever be of service to your group, I can be reached at www.Newenglandorganbuilders.com. I hope to hear you in person at some point.
October 3, 2008
Hi, heard you on ABC classic FM in Sydney last night. Suzanne from Crazy. Stunning, beautiful and please play it again. Came home bought it on iTunes. Have played it 3 times. Have watched 2 videos of yours Piangero and Suzanne, more beauty! Have you released other cds? If so are they available? Thank you for making my weekend. Are you ever likely to come to Australia? Must go Saturday morning chores are awaiting, again many thanks John
August 22, 2008
I was at your recent concert at Chamberfest in Ottawa recently. Loved it! Hope to see you back next year.
June 3, 2008
It's always a pleasure to see and hear you in action; but Saturday's concert was the best! The Biber was superb and I loved Down to the river to pray. Next season looks fantastic... I can't wait!
June 1, 2008
Please!!!!!! make a CD of last night's concert at Calvin Church
May 31, 2008
I just got back from your concert at the Calvin Church. All I can say is BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you -
May 31, 2008
you guys were fantabulous tonight, in X! It could not have been improved on, except Felix could have used some more sparkles.
May 17, 2008
You guys were so fantastic in Galway last night. Thanks alot. Take care
May 17, 2008
Hi guys, I really enjoyed your gig Addicted to Love in Galway.
I was in charge of the dj after your actuation and now i wish i had talked to you a bit more after, because there is no many chances to get to meet so great musicians.
Best of luck

Wanted to reiterate what a nice time it was seeing you all and what a pleasure it was working with you. Now, a little embarrassing, but I've been jealous of everyone sporting their cool I Furiosi shirts and was wondering if you might be able to send one my way. I'd be happy to compensate any payment or shipping. They're just too cool.
April 12, 2008
Always wondered whether I could combine my love of masochism with my love of historically informed baroque performance. Now I have the answer...

Speaking on behalf of myself & Co. the concert a while ago was really, really splendiforus! even though that's not a word (you see, I enjoyed it so much I had to make up a word to describe how great it was.....but that's what you get from someone who puts "quotation marks" in the middle of her name.....)
September 17, 2007
CRAZY! That was a trip! Never a moment's chance of feeling the pews hard or being lulled to sleep by the continuo.
August 4, 2007
Your version of "Somewhere" had my girlfriend and I crying in a Toronto church...we're in a (temorary, hopefully) long distance relationship and it hit the nerve. Fantastic stuff.

Great seeing you on the Air Canada plane on the way to London for Tudeley where my friends thought you were stunning...look forward to the Fall season in TO...
July 15, 2007
Loved your concert at Tudeley - would like to hear any future dates when you are the UK. Great creative and innovative performance!!
July 14, 2007
I heard you on BBC radio 3 on the 13th July 07. Great performance and entertaining banter too. Best wishes.

oh my loving life!!! this is a message specifically for felix deak. yes, this is your friend from interlochen, cedric, and iwould love to hear from you. so good to see that you are doing well. i can be contacted at email@example.com or
June 18, 2007
Thank you for the special Pride performance. You've exploded so many of my prejudices, I mean about music and concerts. Like, I never knew till this performance that it's possible to enjoy a whole concert, of classical music, without being forced to sit through a couple of tedious modernistic pieces that some musicologist has decided will be "good for us."
Like, not all soprano solists are 'screechy sopranos.' You even overcame my prejudice against audienceiparticipation gimmicks. And, Felix, not all parents who recommend their kid's music recitals to their friends are deafened by love; yours aren't.
May 29, 2007
I LOVE YOU!!!
Thank you for the great and wonderful concert in Regensburg!
Hope you'll come back to germany soooon!
May 25, 2007
Sorry for punking out and missing your concert at Grace Church-on-the-Hill. I would have loved to have gone. I shall be awash with anticipation over your next Toronto gig.

I put your upcoming concert on my arts blog. Looking forward to it!

You guys present baroque music in a way that my parents would hate - I love it!
April 1, 2007
Hey Felix & Co. I'd just like to say that the Final Frontier was amazing and I truly can't wait for your next show. We all really enjoyed it. Love the CD. Hope to see you soon.
March 29, 2007
Hey! Where did you come from? I just heard you on Classical 96.3 FM and went immediately to your website to buy your CD. If you make another CD, put me on standing order!!! What an incredible group and what talent!
March 12, 2007
Just want to say a nostalgic hello to Julia W and ask her if she remembers me singing Mendelssohn's violin concerto in the lunch hall in Grade 11....best wishes to all of you. Nice to see you're doing well. TG (www.lascaux21.com)

Thanks felix for the influence you made on me in 6th grade...
January 8, 2007
I remember when our mutual friend Etai took me to a concert to see you perform many years ago... since then I have seen you all grow greater into the musicians that you are today! I truly believe that Toronto is greatly fortunate to have you!
I must admit that I'm really looking forward to the concert on the 13'th.
You all are going very very far in your musical careers. Truly gifted.
January 8, 2007
Hi Felix, et al. i'm excited greatly about the 13th. Just listened to the wee clip and can't wait to hear more. Yippeee!

Hello all, Gabrielle, we have seen you perform over the years with Arcady (and once at Calvin Presbyterian. Just recently we went to the Tafelmusik sing a long Messiah at we saw the musicians there; very recognizable (forgive me for not knowing your names right now; I have to go back to 'know us' for that!). The CD sounds really good; is it only available on this website? I will be emailing again! All the best on your performances! Margaret VanderVelde
December 16, 2006
Is your CD available anywhere else? It's out of stock at CDBaby and I'd love to get my hands on a copy ASAP. Don't make me beg--it's not particularly becoming.
December 16, 2006
More gigs, please!
October 27, 2006
Why the long wait? I have been holding my breath since your last concert! I can't wait until the 10th - I'll finally exhale!
June 15, 2006
Just wanted to tell all y'all that I'm playing at the Cascade Head Music Festival in Oregon and I forced my colleagues to listen to Defiled and they all flipped for it. This clarinet player said he had never heard anything like it in his life.
Missing you guys and wishing I was at the season finale, heard it was awesome!
May 16, 2006
So...my mum (74 yrs old and very anti-postmodern) LOVED your cd, and your whole presentation. She said: How can I NOT love a group called I Furiosi??? Best mother's day gift yet....
April 5, 2006
You guys are so sexy on stage. I almost passed out at ADDICTED TO LOVE. Wow.
March 30, 2006
Tomorrow will be my first chance to see you since the Great Hall. Can't wait. Any chance of playing in Mississauga? We need you very much!!
February 14, 2006
Hey, I just heard you 5 minutes ago on CBC! I don't know the name of the piece, but it was fabulous.
When I get off work I'm going to go and find your CD.
February 6, 2006
WholeNote Magazine's review gave me the impetus to buy your cd--it is sublime! I'm buying another copy as a gift for my mum when I go to your March concert (my birthday present to myself!). Kudos!
January 22, 2006
My wife and I attended a Tafelmusik concert last night - as we have done and enjoyed for at least the last 20 years. At coffee break I purchased your CD, admittedly, on a whim and today I played it. I have been blown away! The quality, clarity, emotion and passion of your music is phenomenal. I look forward to attending your concert on March 31st.
January 21, 2006
you guys rock my boat and heal my soul. nobody is like you. the differences lie in the adrenalin-charged, risk-taking, brave, passionate choices you make, and the generosity with which you share them.
January 17, 2006
I try to get to your concerts whenever possible and really enjoy them, since i happened on one at Knox College some years ago. Glad to hear about a new CD; I plan to get one on Friday, Jan. 20
