A brand new arrangement of Biber´s extraordinary Battalia (battle) is paired with the motets of Don Carlo Gesualdo, and other works of love.
Such is the versatility of the Consort that not only do they make it work, but they pull it off with style. This unique violin octet performs on eight scaled violins from the tiny treble violin, tuned one octave above the standard violin, to the large bass violin, tuned one octave lower than a cello. That broad palette of instruments helps the ensemble produce an astonishing range of sounds.
