A professional ensemble dealing with historically informed performance of early music, was founded by Roman Válek, the conductor, in 1998 as a chamber orchestra originally designed for performing Renaissance and Baroque vocal – instrumental works. Today the ensemble consists of four parts: orchestra, choir, soloists and vocal quintet and its scope covers all genres of Renaissance, Baroque and classicism. The members are professional singers and instrumentalists coming from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Germany, presenting authentic period performances.
The ensemble performs a repertoir consisting of orchestral, choral and operatic works from the Baroque and Classical eras, using instruments and performance techniques that reflect the period in which the works were composed.
