Baroque ensemble on original instruments

The ensemble is formed by young professionals specialized in the Baroque  repertoire. Members of the group are Olga Bernardi and Fabiano Martignago (recorders), Stefano Sopranzi (Baroque bassoon) and Luca Poppi (harpsichord). The group was constituted in 2003 and came first at the “Dino Caravita” national competition (Fusignano, 2004).

   In June 2009, the ensemble won the national competition of ERTAItalia (European Recorder Teachers’ Association), president of the jury Dan Laurin from the Royal College of Music of Stockholm.

   Aiming to create occasions for listening to music by following early practices with sound and style close to the original, the group performs on authentic early instruments (Baroque bassoon made at the second half of the XVIII century) or on copies from instruments found in European museums. This aim is reached without reducing the musical experience to a mere reproduction of past modules, but trying to give out a lively and updated performance.

   They have attended the Chamber Music Masterclass of the "Festival Gregorio Strozzi" in San Severino Lucano (Potenza, Italy) in 2009, and they have recently been invited to perform at the “Gorizia Classica” concert season, the “XVII International Early Music Festival” in Bergamo, the “San Giacomo Festival” in Bologna, the “Chieri Musica” concert season (Torino), the “Internatiovnal Early Music Festival” in Treviso, the “Podzimnì Hudebnì Festival” in the Czech Republic, the “Venice Music Project”, “Musica e Spiritualità” (Venezia).

   In April 2010 the ensemble recorded six trios by the Swedish composer J.H. Roman. The cd has been published as “Catalogue CD 2011-2012” by “La Bottega Discantica” (Milano).


“the ensemble is excellent, the tone of the recorders nice to the ear and the interpretation is vivid and full of contrast”

(from a review of J.H. Roman cd by Johan van Veen, 2014)

“We attended a concert of early music performed with original instruments  performed in the beautiful Church of San Giovanni Evangelista. The program was inspired and the musicians were accomplished and wonderfully enthusiastic. This was a highlight of our visit to Venice and made for a magical and unforgettable evening”
