Iberian Ensemble, founded in 2014, comprising baroque violin, viola da gamba, traverso, and harpsichord, presents historically informed interpretations that reveal the stylistic richness of Baroque repertory. On this edition of Baroque&Before, the focus is on instrumental works of the 17th and 18th centuries from Italy and the Iberian Peninsula.

This week’s program was recorded live in concert March 3, 2022 in Lisbon’s Church of Menino Deus, as part of Early Music Day celebrations held throughout Europe.
