Scaramuccia (NL)

Scaramuccia was founded with the intention of rediscovering the lesser-known baroque repertoire. Throughout his career the ensemble has been praised for the liveliness and expressiveness of his performances, their closeness to the public and the originality of their programs. Scaramuccia was awarded the Audience Prize in the Göttinger Reihe Historischer Musik 2015/2016 competition. Their first album, Vivaldi. Nuove Sonate (Ayros, 2016), includes, among other pieces, the RV 820 and the RV 205/2, recently discovered by Javier Lupiáñez, the violinist and musicologist of the ensemble. The ensemble is currently working on The Cabinet II Project, a musical journey to Johann Georg Pisendel's Dresden through his collection of manuscripts preserved in Schrank II collection at the Sächsische Landesbibliothek – Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek library in Dreden. 1717. Memories of a Journey to Italy (nominated in 2019 for the ICMA awards) and Pisendel. Neue Sonaten (just released in December 2020) are the first two albums of the project.
