Abchordis Ensemble was founded in 2011 with the desire to shine a light on masterpieces of Italian baroque, which till now remain unpublished and unedited. To this end, the ensemble has undertaken a careful and scrupulous musical research activity, devoted mainly to rediscovering sacred Italian music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Abchordis Ensemble has performed at important festivals and exhibitions, including: Ambronay Festival (France), Internationale Händel-Festspiele (Göttingen, Germany), Festival classique des Haudères (Switzerland), Mars en Baroque (Marseille, France) Les Riches Heures de Valère (Sion, Switzerland), Valletta International Baroque Festival (Malta), Pavia Baroque, Urbino Ancient Music, Anima Mea Festival (Puglia), Alessandro Stradella Festival (Nepi).
In 2012, with their first project, Virgo Singularis, the ensemble received two artistic residencies at the Cultural Center in Ambronay (France) and the Collegio Ghislieri in Pavia. Both residencies were renewed in 2015 in the context of the EEEmerging emerging young European ensemble programme. In 2013, the ensemble was invited to participate in the REMA Showcase (Réseau Européen de Musique Ancienne) in Marseille, where they were awarded the public prize, and in 2015 they won first prize at the Handel International Competition in Göttingen.
In 2016, Abchordis Ensemble released their first album, Stabat Mater, entirely dedicated to the sacred music of Neapolitan Baroque, including unpublished works by Gennaro Manna, Aniello Santangelo and Giacomo Sellitto. The record was released by SONY Deutsche Harmonia Mundi to international critical acclaim.
