Biography

Since its formation in 2006, Ensemble Meridiana has established itself as one of Europe's finest Baroque ensembles of its generation. The five members of Ensemble Meridiana come from four different countries. They met during their studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland where they specialised in early music.

Ensemble Meridiana has won three major international competitions: the 4th International Telemann Competition (2007, Magdeburg Germany), the International Young Artists Competition (2009, York UK) and the Göttinger Reihe Historischer Musik der Händel-Gesellschaft Göttingen (2011, Göttingen Germany).

Ensemble Meridiana has performed in prestigious international festivals, such as Händel Festspiele Göttingen, Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music London, Freunde Alter Musik Basel, Magdeburg Telemann Festival, Leipzig Bach Archive Summer Concerts, York Early Music Christmas Festival, Brecon Baroque Festival and London King's Place. Major concert tours have taken them to the UK, Norway, Germany, Romania, Ireland, Finland and Switzerland.

Their first CD, Tastes of Europe, supported by the NCEM and the Fidelio Charitable trust was released by Linn Records to great critical acclaim. In May 2016 they released their second CD, Les Voyages de l'Amour, with Chandos Records.

Meridiana also teaches on summer courses such as Dartington International Summer School and Sligo Baroque Festival.

They are renowned for their exuberant playing, friendly presentation and versatile programming.
