Richter, and others on period instruments, accompanied by an orchestra comprised of New York’s finest period instrumentalists. In its review, Early Music America declares that “Shaw's tone is beautiful, and his playing unfailingly musical… His is a voice that will make a major mark on Baroque trumpet playing.” He has performed on Baroque trumpet throughout North America, including New York (Trinity Church Wall Street, Clarion Society, Bach Vespers at Holy Trinity, Grand Tour Orchestra, and St. Thomas Church), Boston (Boston Early Music Festival), Santa Fe (Pro Musica), and Nashville (Music City Baroque)....
