I have just been introduced to this wonderful baroque ensemble by my friend Fathi, and it has become a new favorite of mine. The group consists of the irresistible instruments of lyra, harp, psaltery, lavta, theorbo, cornetto, harpsichord, chitarra battente, bass and voices – performed with such precision and feeling- all in the appealing arrangements of Christina Pluhar. The ensemble, which is called L’Arpeggiata, is a gathering if musicians from France, Italy, Greece and Spain, and is presently touring with their new album Mediterraneo. Right now they are actually on their way to Norway, where they will perform on Bergen International Festival.
