Ensemble Lucidarium appears in...

Founded in 1991, this international award-winning group specializes in Medieval and Renaissance music. Much of Ensemble Lucidarium’s research is dedicated to repertoires meant for daily use and represents a mirror of the taste and mentality of the era. In 2004, the Ensemble won the European Association for Jewish Culture award for musical creation for “La Istoria de Purim: Music and Poetry of the Jews of Renaissance Italy.” Since then, the program, recorded for K617 in 2005, and has had more than 35 performances in nine countries.

Lucidarium is currently in residence at the Abbey of Royaumont, for a project dedicated to the reconstruction and realization of Angelo Poliziano’s Fabula d’Orpheo, the 1480 precursor of the modern opera. The project, which premiered in August of 2006, is a co-production of the Fondation Royaumont – CERIMM, the Centre de Musique Ancienne de Genève, the Konzertgebouw Bruges and Les Chemins du Baroque (Sarrebourg.)
