This Ensemble continues the heritage of the Società Cameristica di Lugano, which since the early Fifties led by Edwin Loehrer concentrated on the recovery of vocal and instrumental works of the Baroque, earning world-wide success with live performances and recordings (several of which won Golden Records).
Together with the Swiss Radio Choir under the direction of Diego Fasolis using the name "Ensemble Vanitas" the Ensemble has performed several concerts and recording which are always enthusiastically welcomed by specialized critics.
Swiss artist Duilio Galfetti (well-known for his Teldec recordings) plays first violin. The rest of the Ensemble is made up, in variable formations, of between 6 to 26 musicians - all renowned Swiss and Italian virtuosi with a solid cultural and instrumental education who are also recognised international soloists.
