Mélomanie means music mania!  This beautiful French word also translates as the love of music.

Mélomanie presents provocative pairings of early and contemporary works in innovative collaborations with guest performers and composers.  Mélomanie’s early music programming highlights Baroque music performed on period instruments. Their contemporary repertoire features works from the 20th and 21st Centuries, including world premieres written especially for the ensemble.  Mélomanie performs throughout the region and presents a concert series at The Delaware Contemporary in Wilmington, Delaware. The ensemble has recorded works of Telemann on Lyrichord Discs. A contemporary CD, Florescence, featuring original compositions written for the ensemble, was released in 2011.  The ensemble's newest CD, Excursions —  also a collection of original works written for Mélomanie — was released in 2014.  Mélomanie is supported by the Delaware Division of the Arts and the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation.

Mélomanie is: Donna Fournier, viola da gamba, Douglas McNames, cello, Kimberly Reighley, flute, Christof Richter, violin and Tracy Richardson, harpsichord.
