Since its founding in 1970, the Collegium Instrumentale Brugense has established its identity as a group of like-minded musicians, which under the professional direction of Patrick Peire explores in depth the character and style of each composition. The ensemble has now an acknowledged and renowned place amongst the specialised chamber orchestras of Belgium. From its beginning, the musicians and its director have striven towards a particular way of performing in which the individual musical expression of each period is studied and applied as strictly as possible. Despite the search for authenticity, the orchestra plays on modern instruments, a choice that widens the scope of the repertoire, and enables performances even in concert halls with less favourable acoustics. The orchestra has a fixed core of players, augmented when necessary. Through its collaboration with the Capella Brugensis the group has a broad scope of possibilities in programming from a wide-ranging repertoire. The orchestra also has also commissioned works from contemporary Belgian composers. Awards include a nomination in 1996 in the category Opera Recording for the important American Grammy for its participation with the Capella Brugensis in the Naxos recording of Rossini’s Tancredi (Naxos 8.660037–38). Other recordings for Naxos include Mozart’s Solemn Vespers (Naxos 8.554158). Over the years the choir and orchestra have made some forty recordings. In April 1996 the Collegium Instrumentale Brugense was awarded the Prize of the Municipal Cultural Council in Bruges. The orchestra receives subsidies from the Flemish Government, the Province of West Flanders, and the City of Bruges.
