OUR PROGRAMS

WHO WE ARE

The modern voice of memory.

 

Seconda Pratica Ensemble is a music ensemble specializing in performing XVII and XVIII century repertoire for a XXI century audience.
We chose the name Seconda Prat!ca because we believe there are always new ways to approach the past, finding its modern voice and message.
Since 2013, Seconda Pratica is a beneficiary of the Eeemerging project (Emerging European Ensembles) supporting young early music ensembles within the framework of the Creative Europe programme.

We have also recently released our debut album “Nova Europa” with the label of Ambronay!
