La Morra is well-established as one of Europe’s leading ensembles for music from the late mediaeval and early Renaissance periods. La Morra is an international ensemble of singers and instrumentalists and takes its name from Henricus Isaac's famous fantasia.
The ensemble is based in Basel, the cultural capital of Switzerland, where the tradition of historically informed performance of early music dates back to the 1930s. Under the joint artistic leadership of Corina Marti and Michal Gondko, the ensemble is reconfigured according to the requirements of the works it performs. Renowned for its intelligent, thoroughly researched programming as well as “absolutely remarkable” (Diapason) interpretations that “never fail to keep the listener’s attention alive” (Gramophone), La Morra has given concerts and made recordings for two decades.
Concert tours have taken the ensemble to the most prestigious early music festivals and concert series in Europe, the United States and Asia, whilst their CD releases are eagerly anticipated and enthusiastically received. Their recordings have not only been been awarded the Diapason d’Or, the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, the Noah Greenberg Award of the American Musicological Society and the Gramophone Award, together with nominations for the International Classical Music Award, but have also been given constantly high ratings by the international music press.
