Ensemble Bizzaries (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: 2001 - Europe

Bizzaries is a pan-European period instrument ensemble, founded by members of the European Union Baroque Orchestra in 2001. The group takes its name from Universal Bizzaries - a set of Baroque string concertos by William Corbett, each celebrating a different European region. Since their first concerts together in August 2002.

Bizzaries have performed regularly in England, Austria and Germany and were finalists in the Early Music Network International Young Artists Competition 2003.hey have established a residency at Burg Stein and Schloss Waldenburg in Germany, where they have given several sell-out performances as the Fürstlich Schönburgische Capelle, reviving an ancient tradition of music in the court at the invitation of Prinz Alfred von Schönburg.

Individually, the members of Bizzaries maintain freelance careers with some of Europe's most prestigious ensembles. Together they delight in exploring 17th and 18th century chamber music for strings and more, from the familiar to the frankly bizarre. On Saturday August 27, 2008, at the Worcester Festival they performed an arrangement of the Mozart Requiem for string quartet by a younger contemporary, Peter Lichtenthal.
