From the producers of Harmonia: a collection of timeless baroque music for weddings, ceremonies, and other special occasions.

The recording features music by Bach, Handel, Telemann, and other baroque composers all performed by the virtuoso musicians of Ensemble L''AURA on period instruments.

The Ensemble

L''AURA was founded in 2002 by harpsichordist Bernardo Gordillo while studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (London). The ensemble, originally a trio that focused on Italian Baroque improvisation, gained initial recognition the following year as a Deutsche Bank Pyramid Award finalist. Bernard has since expanded the ensemble and its scope of interpretation to include a number of unjustly neglected composers of the Baroque era.

The name L''AURA (Italian for “The Wind”), was inspired by the title of Juan Hidalgo''s opera Celos aun del aire matan (“Jealousy, even from the air, kills”). It is of ancient belief that the wind was a powerful carrier of emotion.

From the sublime realm of Chant to the passion of an Italian Baroque violin sonata, Harmonia, a weekly 59-minute radio program, brings the music of these earlier periods to life for radio audiences, as performers of today cast new light on the music of the distant past. Harmonia is hosted by early music scholar and performer Angela Mariani.
