Accentus Austria Austria
Ensemble Accentus was established in Vienna in 1988 and now consists of thirteen musicians, appearing in various groupings. On some occasions guest artists join the ensemble to contribute specialised skills or complete the demands of the repertoire. Of particular interest is the early music of Spain, with its fertile mixture of cultures, a source of wider inspiration to music of the Renaissance. Accentus has paid special attention to the improvisatory element in performance practice of the period.
