“La Sfera Armoniosa plays as fabulous atmosphere makers”

Founded in 1992 by lutenist Mike Fentross and viola da gamba player Paulina van Laarhoven, La Sfera Armoniosa focuses on performing music from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. In a short time, La Sfera Armoniosa developed to a top level ensemble performing at major European festivals and venues receiving raving reviews for a wide variety of projects during three decades of existence.

La Sfera Armoniosa is currently working on the series Dutch Masters. Music by forgotten Dutch composers from the 17th and 18th centuries, such as Willem de Fesch, Pieter Hellendaal and Count Unico van Wassenaer, will be presented to the public on national and international concert stages and recordings.

In September 2023 La Sfera Armoniosa released a new album with music by Unico van Wassenaer.
