L'Armonia Sonora  

L'Armonia Sonora  L'ARMONIA SONORAwas founded in 2004 by Mieneke van der Velden in order to perform cantatas with a variety of vocal soloists. The ensemble consists entirely of musicians recognised within the early music world both in the Netherlands and internationally, and who teach at various Dutch and international conservatoria. The makeup of the ensemble often answers the performance needs of a particular cantata – or even a specific aria – and the programming possibilities thus offered make possible some very varied concerts. In this way, the group can consist of a continuo group only, or be extended by the addition of strings and winds. L'Armonia Sonora works with wellknown soloists such as bass Peter Kooij and the counter-tenors Derek Lee Ragin and Robin Blaze. The ensemble has recorded two previous CDs with Ramée: De profundis clamavi, early German cantatas, in collaboration with Peter Kooij; and da Gamba, featuring sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach for viola da gamba in various instrumental combinations.
