PRISMA has been touring Europe from the very beginning of the group’s existence: Germany, Austria, France, Great Britain, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovenia… The ensemble of four young musicians has come together to play the particularly expressive, wacky, and colourful music of the 16th and 17th century.
The Göttinger Tageblatt states that “this truly vivid art of interpretation – together with technical perfection, beauty of sound and balance – gives the impression that every phrase is invented at the very moment.”
In May 2015, PRISMA won 1st Prize at the International Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber Competition in Austria. Following this, they were invited to give concerts at the Biber Festival in Vienna, the Reihe Historischer Musik der Händel-Festspiele Göttingen, and on air with the Westdeutscher Rundfunk and Ö1 – Österreichischer Rundfunk. In 2016, 2017 and 2018, they were accepted to be part of the programme “Emerging European Ensembles” (Centre Culturel d’Ambronay). Music journalist Leszek Bernat wrote about the group’s appearance at Ambronay “EEEmerging” Festival: “PRISMA enchanted the audience which was captivated by their musicality, perfect understanding between the musicians, art of ornamentation and the joy of making music together. No wonder this group won the Audience Price.”
