Ensemble Marquise a group of artists of the new generation of early music interpretors, who give alive the 18th cultural life: music, poetry and style with a drop of sensuality.
Ensemble Marquise presents early music concerts in costume. Our repertoire is very broad, from early Baroque pieces right through to Mozart. In the concerts you can hear virtuoso and lyric arias and duets for two sopranos with the accompaniment of period instruments, as well as instrumental solos and trios. The harmonic combination of a male soprano and a coloratura soprano voice provides a refined special sound, and a unique musical experience. The concerts evoke the atmosphere of the 17-18 century with period costumes, scenic accessories, acting and narration to complement and dramatize the musical experience, and making the performance unforgettable and extremely enjoyable.
