The Ensemble laBarocca was founded in 2008 with the aim of forming an ensemble of professional musicians highly specialized in the performances of the Baroque Age. Year after year, together with the Vocal Ensemble conducted by Gianluca Capuano, laBarocca has increased its repertoire, which now includes a wide range of works from the early Baroque (among which Vespro della Beata Vergine by Monteverdi and Davidis Pugna et Victoria by Alessandro Scarlatti) to classical works of the 18thcentury. G. F. Handel’s Messiah, J. S. Bach‘s Christmas and Easter Oratorios, performed every year, have now become traditional events for the city of Milan during the related festivities. With its various programs, laBarocca also celebrates important musical anniversaries, such as the 300th anniversary of G. F. Handel’s Rinaldo premiere, the death of J. P. Rameau, the 25th anniversary of C. W. Gluck’s Orfeo e Euridice. In 2019, laBarocca will be on tour once again touching base in Europe and in Italy with more than 10 concerts with stops that include the Gluck Festival in Nurnberg, the Enescu Festival in Bucharest and once again Wigmore Hall.
