First came together in 1998 as the project group which comprised three generations of Estonian early music players. The name Ä¢Ecco la PrimaveraÄ£ reflects the aspiration of the group to approach music without prejudice, as being always fresh, like the rebirth of nature in spring. The musicians strive for unity with the ways of thinking of the early musicians and with each other on the one hand, on the other, they are willing to take liberties, like when trying out unusual combinations of players in playing music originally written for gamba or broken consorts.
The present programme, Ä¢A la EspaÅ†aÄ£, is the group's third, the former two were of Italian and English music. In every programme the accent is laid on the one period, region or composer. In this programme this person is the composer and the gamba virtuoso Diego Ortiz (1510-1570).
The group would like to express their thanks to Early Music Studio Cantores Vagantes for an opportunity to use their instruments and rehearsal facilities.
