Il Giardino Armonico

Il Giardino Armonico

Il Giardino Armonico is a pioneering Italian early music ensemble founded in Milan in 1985 by Luca Pianca and Giovanni Antonini, primarily to play 17th and 18th century music on period instruments.
profile & recordings >>

A firework display of virtuosic arias, written by the leading personalities of Baroque music (Cavalli, Handel, Purcell, Hasse) and some composers still awaiting rediscovery such as Sartorio, Graupner and the Venetian Castrovillari. This programme is built around the tragedy of the the queens of Egypt and Carthage, who Anna Prohaska interprets with the passion and fervour that have made her reputation. Prohaska is accompanied by one of today's finest Baroque ensembles, Il Giardino Armonico and under the inspired guidance of their director Giovanni Antonini, they keep us on the edge of our seats from start to finish.

 'Another stunner from soprano Anna Prohaska...It's all beautifully planned and paced, with riveting instrumental interludes from Il Giardino Armonico.' The Observer
