PRISMA is formed of four students from the German conservatoires of Bremen and Hanover. Their shared interest in bizarre, colourful, chromatic and fantastical music led to the creation of the group in 2014.
PRISMA explores the instrumental music of the 17th century, and in particular chromatic and expressive works such as Adam Jarzebski’s Concerto chromatico, Giovanni Valentino’s Sonata enharmonica and music by Antonio Bertali, Francesco Turini and Dario Castello.
Within the eeemerging programme, PRISMA was in residency at the Ambronay Cultural Encounter Centre from 14 to 22 March and will be at the Riga Early Music Centre (Latvia) from 8 to 15 August. The ensemble will also take part in the eeemerging Festival during the Ambronay Festival on 8 October 2016.
