Combattimento* Ensembles/ orchestra

Energetic, fiery, and style-conscious: that's how one can describe the Combattimento way of playing. Combattimento's primary artistic goal is the lively and accessible presentation of both well-known and newly discovered works from the Baroque period. Individual solistic qualities combined with close-knit ensemble playing has developed into a unique sound and style over the years.

Their renowned way of playing has become known as the 'Combattimento-style'. All members proffer a wealth of musical knowledge and experience to audiences and musicians all over the world. To present the most varied interpretation possible of music from the Baroque period, Combattimento frequently seeks collaboration with top soloists as Liza Ferschtman, Maarten Koningberger and Gordan Nikolic. The ensemble also works together with other well-established creative companies in the Netherlands such as the Scapino Ballet Rotterdam and the Nationale Reisopera. The ensemble has traveled all over the world under the name of Combattimento Consort Amsterdam, directed by violinist Jan Willem de Vriend. Testimony of their artistic prominence can be found on more than 35 CD and DVD productions.
