Musica Fiata was founded in 1976 as an ensemble specializing in the performance of 16th and 17th century music on historical instruments.
An intensive study of performance-practice sources, playing techniques and original instruments of the period has enabled the group to develop a speech-based musical style and a distinctive sound which lends a transparency to the most dense textures.
Musica Fiata's exciting, virtuosic performances have resulted in invitations to leading festivals such as Ravenna, Innsbruck, Flanders, Utrecht, Brügge, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Venice, Herne, Berlin, York, Ansbach, Graz, Breslau, Malmo and Israel as well as radio and television recordings throughout Europe. Musica Fiata has recorded 30 CD's to date for Sony Classical, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi and CPO. "
