The Harmonious Society of Tickle Fiddle Gentlemen is an ensemble formed in 2006, with a particular mission to research and present unfairly neglected baroque era composers and their music. Their recording of Concertos by Czech composer Josef Guretsky was released in 2016, and Suzanne spoke with the group’s artistic director Robert Rawson about his colleagues and their process for finding their unusual repertory.
