Combattimento Consort Amsterdam

Combattimento Consort Amsterdam

Founded in 1982 by violinist Jan Willem de Vriend, the Combattimento Consort Amsterdam has developed into a close-knit ensemble specialising in music from 1600-1830, played on modern instruments.

The musicians’ wish not to focus solely on the standard repertoire has resulted in many interesting programmes featuring remarkable and little-known works, some of which are only available in manuscript. The performance of these compositions in conjunction with more familiar works has proved to be refreshing and inspiring to listeners and performers alike.

Over the years the ensemble has given many memorable concerts and operatic performances including Handel’s Rodelinda, Alcina, also by Handel, and Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, in collaboration with De Nationale Reisopera.
In addition to numerous concerts in the Netherlands, the Combattimento Consort also appeared in various European countries and in venues outside of Europe. Successful tours in the United States, Japan and South America have always been attracting attention in national and international media. Concerts often have solo performances by members of the ensemble, but the Combattimento Consort has also worked with great performers such as Barbara Bonney, Andreas Scholl, Anthony Rolfe Johnson, Thomas Zehetmair and Sabine Meyer, as well as joining forces with Collegium Vocale Gent and other groups.

Over the years, the ensemble has made numerous CD recordings. Several of them have won the highest praise of the Dutch music magazine Luister.

Meanwhile Jan Willem de Vriend has left the ensemble to focus on his conducting activities. The other members have decided to continue under the name of Combattimento in 2014.
