Concert at the Habsburg Court[CD]
~ La Stravaganza
Ensemble Stravaganza was founded by violinist Domitille Gilon and harpsichordist Thomas Soltani. The group's forces include regular members Ronald Martin Alonso on gamba and guitarist Damien Pouvreau, and are augmented as needed by members of other prestigious period instrument ensembles. The group's debut disc focuses on music from the Habsburg court, one of the most powerful empires in European history. Music enlivened the Hapsburg Court starting in the fifteenth century. The accession of Ferdinand III to the throne in 1637 started a new line of cultivated music-loving emperors, promoting talented musicians and prolific composers. The four composers featured on this album were beneficiaries of the artistic enlightenment of the court.
