Ensemble Lucidarium: La Istoria de Purim
Ensemble Lucidarium: "Pure energy on period instruments" - one of Italy's premier Early Music ensembles makes their Bay Area debut with "La Istoria de Purim," a program devoted to the music and poetry of the Jews in Renaissance Italy that has delighted audiences and critics from Paris to Budapest.

Founded in 1991, this international award-winning group specializes in medieval and Renaissance music. In 2004, the Ensemble won the European Association for Jewish Culture award for musical creation for "La Istoria de Purim: Music and Poetry of the Jews of Renaissance Italy." Since then, the program has had more than 35 performances in nine countries.

The concert is a vivacious combination of voices and instruments played with the freedom that comes from a solid knowledge of musical style and historical background, and meticulous preparation and creativity.

Lucidarium is currently in residence at the Abbey of Royaumont, for a project dedicated to the reconstruction and realization of Angelo Polizianos Fabula d'Orpheo, the 1480 precursor of the modern opera. The project, which premiered in August of 2006, is a co-production of the Fondation Royaumont CERIMM, the Centre de Musique Ancienne de Genave, the Konzertgebouw Bruges and Les Chemins du Baroque (Sarrebourg).
