L'Avventura London

L’Avventura London, directed by Zak Ozmo, is a period-instrument ensemble dedicated to the exploration of Western musical repertoire from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Through a combination of brilliant virtuosity, passion, unbridled dramaticism, and an extensive knowledge of historical performance practice and its repertoire, L’Avventura London seeks to bring the joy of a new musical adventure to its rapidly growing audiences. Testifying to the ensemble’s swift rise since its formation in 2009, L’Avventura’s performances have been featured on BBC Radio 3, American NPR, German KulturRadio and MDR Figaro, Austrian ORF Radio Ö1, Belgium Radio Klara, and Russian Classic FM, among others; the press has praised the group for its ‘excellent musicianship’ and ‘an admirable understanding of Baroque performance conventions’ (Gramophone), and described its performances as ‘engaging, entertaining … an enormous amount of atmosphere and character’ (Opera News).

The majority of L’Avventura’s concert programmes are based on original sources, and include modern debuts of forgotten musical treasures along with fresh takes on more familiar and much-loved masterpieces. The music is performed from new, custom-made performing editions and on original or exacting copies of the original instruments for which the music was written.
