L'Arpeggiata is a renowned ensemble that was founded in 2000. Under the direction of Christina Pluhar, the musicians work together with exceptional singers from the baroque and classical music world. With their performances they want - almost unknown - to breathe new life into the Golden Age repertoire. Because of the staging, the L’Arpeggiata concerts are attractive to both the ear and the eye.
