La Sfera Armoniosa play as fabulous athmosphere makers

La Sfera Armoniosa is a world-class baroque ensemble and orchestra and is known for its surprising and pioneering programmes. Besides music by famous composers such as Monteverdi, Händel and Vivaldi, the ensemble also performs lesser-known music that has been distilled from 17th- and 18th-century music prints and manuscripts after extensive research.

Lutenist, artistic director and conductor Mike Fentross and viola da gamba player Paulina van Laarhoven are the founders of La Sfera Armoniosa.

Ganz dem Namen des Ensembles entsprechend bildet er mit diesem wahrlich eine harmonische Einheit… Und gemeinsam mit Mike Fentross scheint es als ob da zwei sind, die sich blind verstehen und sich prima ergänzen mitsamt dem Orchester.

Exécution techniquement parfaite de son ensemble, sa lecture de «Membra Jesu Nostri» séduit par son intensité et sa théâtralité : Fentross exacerbe les contrastes, ose des rubati rarement de mise dans ce répertoire et bâtit des nuances de puissance qui apportent à la musique une dimension sonore supplémentaire.
