 Update me on new releases by Passacaglia


Passacaglia is one of Britain’s best-loved baroque chamber ensembles. The group combines the unique sound of recorders, flute, viola da gamba and harpsichord with an engaging and charismatic stage presence which has attracted them worldwide attention, especially for their interpretations of French baroque music. As well as acclaimed performances at the Wigmore Hall and Purcell Room, Passacaglia has been invited to perform at many of the major festivals and venues across the British Isles. The ensemble has also toured in Scandinavia, Ireland, America and Eastern Europe, and enjoyed fruitful collaborations with Dan Laurin, recorders, and Julia Gooding, soprano. Passacaglia has featured in many BBC radio programmes and broadcasts, and on worldwide radio networks. They have also recorded two discs for Linn Records. Passacaglia has a particular affinity for early eighteenth century French chamber music, championing lesser-known masters such as Joseph Bodin de Boismortier and Louis-Antoine Dornel, in addition to more familiar baroque repertoire. The group has also commissioned a number of contemporary pieces for their particular instrumental combination, including works by Peter McGarr, Timothy Coker and Geoffrey Gordon.
