Ensemble Accentus was established in Vienna in 1988 and consists of thirteen musicians, appearing in various groupings. On some occasions guest artists join the ensemble to contribute specialised skills or complete the demands of the repertoire. Of particular interest is the early music of Spain, with its fertile mixture of cultures, a source of wider inspiration to music of the Renaissance; Accentus has paid special attention to the improvisatory element in performance practice of the period. The repertoire of the ensemble ranges from the surviving oral tradition of Sephardic romances, art and popular music of about 1,500 to sacred and secular polyphonic music of the later sixteenth century. In recent years Accentus has appeared at the Semana de Musica Antigua in Seville, the Barcelona Concerts d’Estiu at Montserrat and at similar festivals in London and throughout Germany and Austria, as well as in Poland and Israel.
