Europa Galante

Baroque, Chamber

  • Europa Galante was founded in 1990 by its musical director Fabio Biondi who wanted to form an Italian period instrument ensemble to perform both baroque and classical repertoire. The group has since gone on to international acclaim, gaining an impressive list of awards for their recordings and performing in many of the world’s major concert halls and theatres.


    Intermusica has toured Europa Galante since 2012 when the ensemble toured Mexico as part of Festival Cervantino. Since then together they have travelled to give performances in Russia, China, Korea and most recently Japan for staged productions of Vivaldi’s L’Oracolo in Messenia, Europa Galante’s recording of which received the Diapason D’Or.

  • 欧洲嘉兰古乐团于1990年由艺术总监法比奥·比昂迪创立。他当时想创立一个可以用意大利早期古乐器同时表演巴洛克和古典时期音乐作品的乐团。乐团紧接着获得了世界性的声誉,荣获了一系列的奖项而且在世界各大著名音乐厅中进行过表演。


    自2012年起Intermusica就开始为嘉兰古乐团进行巡演,首场巡演是在墨西哥塞万提斯国际艺术节上举行的。自那时起,乐团在俄罗斯、中国和韩国以及最近在日本都进行过巡演,曲目有维瓦尔第的L’Oracolo in Messenia。这首曲目的唱片录制使乐团荣获了金音叉这一殊荣。

L'Oracolo in Messenia
Europe, Asia, February-March 2015
Europa Galante brings a concert version of Vivaldi's L’Oracolo in Messenia to London and fully staged production to Yokohama, Japan before finishing at the Hong Kong Arts Festival.

First performed in 1738 in Venice, L’Oracolo in Messenia was assembled by Vivaldi for the famously extravagant and subversive Venice carnival. The lost scores have been pieced together by Biondi from rare and forgotten manuscripts as well as published scores and brought to life by a cast including Magnus Staveland, Marianne Beate Kielland, Vivica Genaux, Franziska Gottwald and Julia Lezhneva.

In contrast to this tale of love, revenge and corruption, Europa Galante also presents Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in Birmingham, Tokyo and Matsumoto featuring mezzo-soprano Genaux.

On departure from Japan, the ensemble travels to the Hong Kong Arts Festival for a recital by Biondi, accompanied by harpsichordist Paola Poncet. In addition is a performance based on Europa Galante’s latest CD release, Chiara’s Diary, which received a five-star review in BBC Music Magazine. The programme brings together a collection of concertos dedicated to Chiara, a young woman left on the steps of Ospedale della Pietá as a baby who subsequently studied violin at the orphanage and music school in Venice. Europa Galante’s programme focuses on Venetian composers works written for Chiara and is accompanied by a short film, telling Chiara’s story alongside musical excerpts performed by Europa Galante.
