Divine String Sound
For more than 10 years the award-winning ensemble Capricornus Consort Basel has devoted itself to baroque music in a one-to-a-part setup. The founder, first violinist and artistic director Péter Barczi has gathered a group of musicians around him who have known each other since their studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. In all its interpretations, this close-knit ensemble strives to reach the very essence of the music – with a rich unity of sound and exceptional sensuality.
For its CD projects the Capricornus Consort Basel has received the internationally most renowned distinctions, for example the OPUS KLASSIK Award, the ECHO Klassik Award, the International Classical Music Award, the German Record Critics’ Prize, the “Editor’s Choice” of the Gramophone Magazin as well as the French “Diapason d’or”.
