Early music ensemble
      SONORITÀ

Its name, derived from the Italian word for sonorousness, points to the origins of the ensemble; in 2016,

five musicians from five different countries and cultures came together in an effort to bring a rich, colorful sound to the public. All members of the ensemble are current or former students of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland, the international reference for Early music.

 

Sonorità’s music has been well received in concerts performed in Switzerland, Germany and France, also at international festivals such as the Festival FAMB. The ensemble’s sound is not only acclaimed by the public, but also by academic jurors, Sonorità won the Audience Award and the Second Prize at the Biagio Marini Competition and the 1st prize in the 40th Music Competition of the International Lyceum Club of Switzerland, Lausanne Switzerland. 

The ensemble specializes not only in music from the 17th and 18th century, but also in contemporary music and improvisation. The whole team is dedicated to sharing their unique musical interpretation of each genre, and strives to make the audience vibrate in syntony with the music in every concert.
