Release of our first CD!

In a few weeks we’ll be having three release concerts in Belgium to celebrate the release of our first CD album titled CONCERTI A QUATTRO under the label MUSO.

The CD will be available all over from 10 January 2020 so don’t miss a chance to get your signed copy in preview already at our concerts in October because we will have them with us, fresh out of the oven!



The program Concerti a quattro holds a special place in our hearts and we have had the chance to perform it for several years. These virtuosic and breathtakingly beautiful masterpieces are finally “in the box” for every home to enjoy!

✦ CONCERTI A QUATTRO ✦

Arcangelo CORELLI, Concerto Grosso XVIII fatto per la notte di Natale (Christmas Concerto), arrangement by Johann Christian SCHICKARDT
The Concerto by Corelli, generally played as a concerto grosso with orchestra, is a real classic of the Christmas repertoire. It became so popular already at the time of its creation that a lot of smaller ensembles like ours were over the Moon when J.Ch. Schickhardt made a transcription.

Jacques MOREL, Chaconne en trio
With Jacques Morel’s Chaconne en trio and its bass solo part, the 5-string cello played by Leonor Palazzo reveals its entire beauty.

Georg Friedrich HÄNDEL, Concerto a quattro
Another unusual and fascinating transcription, the concerto by Händel is a jewel in presenting and playing with the different characters of the instruments thoughout the four movements. The arrangement of the concerto made for our ensemble has been unanimously praised for its balance and authentic colours.

Jean-Joseph MOURET, Concert de Chambre n°1
Besides these well-known pieces and composers of the Baroque area, you will get a chance to discover the First Concert de Chambre by J.-J. Mouret. Inspired by the French dance suite, he reveals his version of the chamber concerto, presenting brilliantly each soloist, notably in the chaconne.

Antonio VIVALDI, Concerto for recorder, oboe and continuo RV103
Lastly, the concerto by Antonio Vivaldi portrays the recorder as the main soloist, with the oboe playing the role of ripieno and interlocutor.

Une série de concerts pour fêter les 10 ans de l'ensemble !

C’est avec une grande joie que nous préparons actuellement notre série de concerts du mois de novembre. Le programme est digne de l’occasion car il mettra en lumière le grand talent, la virtuosité et la connivence qui caractérisent nos instrumentistes. Vous l’avez deviné, nous vous présenteron les concertos en musique de chambre !



✦ CONCERTI A QUATTRO ✦

Antonio VIVALDI, Concerto pour flûte à bec, hautbois et basse continue RV103
Ce concerto présente en grande soliste la flûte à bec, le hautbois oscillant entre les rôles de ripieno et d’interlocuteur.

Arcangelo CORELLI, Concerto Grosso XVIII fatto per la notte di Natale, arrangé en trio par Johann Christian SCHICKARDT
Le concerto de Corelli, généralement joué en concerto grosso avec orchestre, est un grand classique du répertoire de Noël. Au moment de sa création, son succès fut tel que nombre de petits ensembles comme le nôtre s’est arraché la transcription réalisée dans la foulée par J.Ch. Schickardt.

Jean-Joseph MOURET, Concert de Chambre n°1
À côté de ces grands classiques de la musique baroque vous aurez la chance de découvrir le Premier Concert de Chambre de J.-J. Mouret. S’inspirant de la suite de danses française, il livre, notamment dans la chaconne, sa version du concerto de chambre, présentant avec brio chaque soliste.

Georg Friedrich HÄNDEL, Concerto a quattro
Encore une transcription inusuelle et captivante. Ce concerto nous a tellement irrémédiablement séduites que nous en avons fait une transcription pour notre formation. Celle-ci suscite, depuis sa révélation au grand public, un engouement unanime.

Jacques MOREL, Chaconne en trio
Pour finir, la Chaconne de Jacques Morel, avec sa voix de basse concertante, présentera le violoncelle à 5 cordes sous son plus beau jour.
