Concerto di Viole

During their long study of the works of the composer Richard Mico (1590-1661), the musicians of the Concerto di Viole ensemble developed characteristic images and associations that make each of the pavanes and fantasies unique to them. Following the tradition of Mico's contemporaries, they have therefore given the pieces new titles to inspire the listeners' imagination. The Ensemble Concerto di Viole was founded in Basle in 1989 and has since then been playing with almost the same lineup. The four permanent members Arno Jochem, Brian Franklin, Brigitte Gasser and Rebeka Ruso have studied at the schola Cantorum Basiliensis at different times and also perform with various different ensembles.
