L'Arpeggiata

Profile:
Founded in 2000, L'Arpeggiata is a French ensemble directed by Christina Pluhar. Its members are some of today's best European soloists: Christina Pluhar, Lucilla Galeazzi, Marcello Vitale, David Mayoral, Richard Myron, Anna Dego, Doron Sherwin, Veronika Skuplik, Alessandro Tampieri, Eero Palviainen and Charles Edouard Fantin. In addition, they work in collaboration with some exceptional singers from the Baroque and traditional music worlds. Their aim is to revive an almost unknown repertoire and to focus their artistic work especially on French, Italian and Neapolitan music from the beginning of the 17th century.

The bases of L'Arpeggiata are instrumental improvisations, a different approach to singing centered on the development of vocal interpretation influenced by traditional music, and the creation and staging of attractive shows.

Since its foundation, L'Arpeggiata has received incredible response and critical aclaim for their live performances and recordings from both the audience and critics. Their recordings include: La Villanella dedicated to the music of Giovanni-Girolamo Kapsberger, Homo Fugit Velut Umbra devoted to Stefano Landi, La Tarantella, which proposes an encounter between baroque and traditional musicians, All'Improvviso, Rapressentatione di Anima et di Corpo by Emilio de' Cavalieri and Los Impossibles with The King’s Singers as well as the Flamenco guitarist Pepe Habichuela.

Furthermore, L’Arpeggiata has performed in many large festivals such as Lufthansa Festival London, Oude Muziek Utrecht, Festival de Pontoise, Printemps des Arts de Nantes, Theatre de Poissy, Theatre de Bordeaux, Rencontres de Vezelay, Festival Musique Sacree de Fribourg, Pfingstfestspiele Melk, Emociana Antigua Madrid, Flagey à Bruxelles, Festival de St Michel-en-Thierache, Festival de Sablé-sur-Sarthe, Brugge Musica Antica and Hong Kong Arts Festival among many others.

In 2006, Arpeggiata performed more than 50 concerts in the most prestigious venues in Europe and abroad which include London, Geneve, Tel Aviv, Austria and Belgium with several programs. These programs include Monteverdi's Il Ballo delle Ingrate, traditional Mediterranean music and music improvisation with jazz accents, in addition to the composer Luigi Rossi and others authors from the Italian XVII century.
