Contrasto Armonico is a leading orchestra/ensemble which focuses on early music, especially music composed in the Italian style.
The aim of Contrasto Armonico is to go back to the roots of the HIP “Historically Inspired Performance”, doing front-line research and advancing the boundaries of early music performance practice. An idea of HIP as a constant “work in progress”, considering it as a philosophy instead of a consolidated tradition.
The orchestra is constituted of professional musicians from all over the world who share the same ideals and feelings for the Early Music performance practice, using copies of original instruments, historical pitches and transpositions, keeping as a goal the intention to get as close as possible to the style and aesthetic of the work performed.
