Their unique sound and dazzling contemporary approach to music-making on
historical instruments have catapulted PHANTASM into international
prominence.  The group's debut CD won a 1997 Grammy Award.  Critics have
used superlatives such as "flawless playing" (Continuo), "electrifying"
(Gramophone), and "revelatory" (Fanfare) to describe PHANTASM's
performances.  Based in London, PHANTASM tours throughout the world.  Their
concert at Duke University will include Bach's "Art of the Fugue" and
Mozart arrangements of Bach fugues from "The Well-Tempered Keyboard II."
