World | New album for the ensemble Gli Incogniti, then dates in Italy and japanese tour
Baroque ensemble Gli Incogniti, led by Amandine Beyer, released an album dedicated to composer Joseph Haydn titled Concerti per Esterházy (Harmonia Mundi) on October 26, and keeps on performing on international stages.
Founded by Amandine Beyer in 2006, ensemble Gli Incongniti is famous for its interpretations of instrumental baroque music.
Since its creation, the ensemble recorded 13 albums via Zig-Zag Territoires/Outhere Music (2006 – 2013), and from 2014 via Harmonia Mundi. All of these releases have garnered critical acclaim and have been distinguished by major awards in the recorded music sphere such as Choc Classica, Diapasons d’or, Télérama’s 4F and Gramophone Award. The totality of their releases are both distributed in France and on the international scale – mainly in Europe, the US and Japan.
This international exposure is also supported on stage. Primarily in Europe, with frequent performances in Belgium, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Switzerland but also dates in Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Poland and the United Kingdom. Outside of the European borders, Gli Incogniti already had the opportunity to tour in Canada, the USA and Japan.
More recently, after a tour in Germany in September, the ensemble is back from the USA – where it performed alongside Belgian dance company Rosas and Belgian baroque orchestra 4F for Anne Teresa de Keersmaecker’s new show Les Six concertos Brandebourgeois. A show that gained a good press coverage in Europe with articles in Neue Zurcher Zeitung (Switzerland), Die Welt (Germany), De Tijd et Le Soir (Belgium).
Next step are Spain and Italy for performances at the Espacio Turina in Sevilla and the Teatro Ristori in Verona. Then a new tour in Japan with a program dedicated to Italian composer Vivaldi in 2019.
