Abchordis has performed in many prestigious festivals including Ambronay Festival, “Les Riches Heures de Valère” Festival (Sion, Switzerland), “Pavia Barocca” (Italy), “Urbino Musica Antica” (Italy), “Mars en Baroque” (Marseille, France), “AnimaMea” (Italy), “Internationale Händel-Festspiele” (Göttingen, Germany). They were invited to participate in the REMA Showcase 2013 (Réseau Européen de la Musique Ancienne), winning the public vote, and they were also winners of the Göttingen Händel Competition 2015.
Abchordis was founded in 2011 by ten talented musicians and friends seeking the same passionate, vibrant, exciting and authentic interpretation of music performed on period instruments and “historically informed”. These four singers and six instrumentalists started a scrupulous activity of research, with the goal of rediscovering unpublished or less performed scores of the Italian 17th and 18th Century. With their first project “Virgo Singularis”, the group was awarded a “Jeune Ensemble en Résidence” at the Cultural Centre of Ambronay (France) and “Ensemble en Residence” at the Ghislieri College of Pavia (Italy). Abchordis is again “Ensemble en Résidence” in Ambronay Festival 2015 and Pavia Barocca 2015.
Abchordis Ensemble conquered its public with its innovative programs and touching performances thus accomplishing the task of its latin name: “from the strings” …of our instruments, our voices and our hearts !
