Concerto di Margherita presents a programme of madrigals, instrumental canzone, villanelle and arie from the late 16th century, with a twist: the ensemble's members sing and accompany themselves simultaneously, creating a rich and layered musical texture.

The programme, with music by Luzzaschi, de Wert and Frescobaldi among others, is inspired by the magnificent court of Ferrara with their celebrated group of self-accompanying musicians, the Concerto delle Donna.
Concerto di Margherita bring a fresh, creative light to songs of hope and bitter resignation from a city on the brink of its demise.
