Welcome to INITIUM. We specialize in lesser known and long neglected music of the mid-18th century. Insofar as possible we work from original sources (manuscripts).

WARNING: This is a text-intensive web site! We tried the little dancing mice --- but they kept losing their ears during the andante con brio! We also found that we were spending more time in site design than in music. It is the music we live for!

Clicking on the INITIUM 'Home' button that appears at the top left of this and all other pages in this site will bring you back to this page from which you can "navigate" (are we at sea?) to all other pages of the site. If you have questions or comments, please contact us at INITIUM And now ... just click on any of the options above for the associated information.

PLEASE NOTE: This site is currently under construction. Some buttons may not function at this time. Thanks for your patience.
