In 2021 they won the Bärenreiter Urtext-Preis at the International Göttingen Händel Competition.

 

The opening concert of the Hamburg-based ensemble I Zefirelli was able to draw the auditorium into storms of enthusiasm due to its original and lively interpretation.” – Jürgen Heidrich (at the Festiwal Muzyki Klasycznej Solcu nad Wisla 2019, PL)
