Noted for her stylish interpretations, luminescent stage presence, and ambitious collection of musical projects, Bay Area cellist and viola da gamba player Shirley Hunt brings fierce imagination and integrity to music of the Renaissance, Baroque, 20th and 21st centuries. 

Shirley performs extensively with local and international period instrument ensembles including Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Musica Angelica, Wiener Akademie, Agave Baroque, and Bach Collegium San Diego.  Other recent engagements include performances with Archetti, Berkeley Symphony, Musica Pacifica, Mark Morris Dance Group, Portland Baroque Orchestra, and the San Francisco Symphony.  Festival appearances include the New Hampshire Music Festival, Corona del Mar Baroque Festival, and the Berlekeley and Boston Early Music Festivals.

J.S. Bach's solo suites for cello, composed c.1720, were not widely known or played until the twentieth century. The absence of an authoritative manuscript has resulted in an extraordinary variety of interpretations, such that one cellist has remarked that the suites are "like a great diamond with so many different cuts that reflect light in so many different ways."
