Tempesta di Mare – Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra received support for two seasons of performances and modern-day premieres of mostly unpublished works by German Baroque composer and Bach contemporary Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688–1758). Tempesta di Mare worked from newly constructed editions by co-artistic directors Richard Stone and Gwyn Roberts. The project featured Tempesta's violinist and concertmaster Emlyn Ngai and lutenist Richard Stone as concerto soloists. The performances also formed the basis for two premiere recordings of project repertoire on the British label Chandos.
