Tientos Ensemble (Instrumental Early Music Ensemble)

Founded: ?

Tientos, the new ancient music - as a newspaper described the ensemble in 1995 - has a repertoire that covers three centuries, beginning with the Renaissance in about 1500 and continuing to the end of the Baroque period in about 1780. The ensemble is directed by the conductor and viola da gamba player Jorge-Daniel Valencia.

The great richness of the music written during these centuries gives rise to enormous performing possibilities, including duos for two bass viols; the baroque trio sonata with recorder, viol, harpsichord and theorbo; a six-part viol consort; as well as expanded ensembles with singers, winds, other stringed instruments and percussion.

A busy concert schedule fosters strong bonds between the members of Tientos, who specialise in the interpretation of early music on instruments of the period. The members of the ensemble have studied with renowned teachers and now are engaged in teaching and research at various schools of music and international music courses in Europe.
