The Sollazzo Ensemble was formed in 2014 in Basel and brings together musicians who share a deep interest in the repertoire of the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance periods.
Sollazzo Ensemble is directed by the fiddle player Anna Danilevskaïa. The members of the group studied at the Schola Cantorum in Basel, Esmuc in Barcelona and at the Paris Conservatoire.
In 2015 the group won the first York Early Music International Young Artists Prize, as well as being rewarded by the public with the Friends of York Early Music Festival Prize, and in addition to that won the Cambridge Early Music Prize.
Future projects of the ensemble include their first CD recording in July 2016 for Linn Records, in cooperation with the BBC radio, as well as a second year in the eeemerging programme : in addition to the residencies at Ghislierimusica in Pavia (Italy) in February 2016 and at Ars Ramovš Ljubljana (Slovenia) in July 2016, Sollazzo Ensemble will be in concert on 24 September 2016 at Ambronay Festival.
