For over 25 years, the ensemble Musica Fiorita, conducted by Daniela Dolci, has been specialising in the performance of late Renaissance and Baroque music. The ensemble strives to promote the current standards of historically informed performance practice and is committed to remaining true to the original scores while ensuring lively performances.
The ensemble members come from across the world, speaking many different languages, and yet they are unified by the language of music through their studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basle. Here, they not only shape their artistry, but are also encouraged to engage in research and discovery in order to broaden their horizons and promote self-development.
Musica Fiorita, with its balanced mix of vocal and instrumental music and the contrast between sacred and secular music, achieves the concept of variety embodied by the early and late Baroque. The performance of selected chamber music is staged, as it once was, as a social event. Church music lives, on the other hand, on simplicity, poetry and deepness. With its instrumental and vocal virtuosity the ensemble could be described as ‘refreshingly authentic’.
