La Stravaganza is a young baroque ensemble that was created around two musicians Gilon Domitille and Thomas Soltani. It brings together young musicians from one of the largest repositories of Europe (Conservatoire supérieur de musique et de danse de Lyon, Conservatoire supérieur d'Amsterdam, Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Paris).
The ensemble was interested in the Habsburg court, where with the advent of Ferdinand III, music boomed, lifting hearts and bringing musicians and composers from all over Europe. This album brings back the jewels of this time, combining works by Schmelzer, Biber, Walther and Froberger.
“Another bright new Baroque group takes the stage...Gilon is an authoritative performer and is well supported by continuo musicians who offer plenty of variety of texture and attack, but I do feel that there is just a touch more atmosphere and passion to be drawn from some of this music...These are small things, however, for Ensemble Stravaganza are clearly talented musicians.”
