Biography:

Founded in 2003, Harmonia del Parnàs performs works written before 1800 on period instruments and in strict accordance to historical criteria, the aesthetic and theoretical peculiarities of each specific place of origin and historical period. Its repertoire is selected after an extensive musicological study of the sources in archives and libraries from around the world. In addition to music by Spanish composers, its repertoire also includes music from the 15th through the 18thcenturies by American composers in the Spanish colonies. In its performances, Harmonia del Parnàs attempts to blend and balance scholarly research with musical creativity. Marian Rosa Montagut is the ensemble’s conductor and director. Since 2009, this group has worked alongside the TEMPUS Center of Music Research and Promotion, with which it has founded a new record label to publish new projects.
