The vocal-instrumental ensemble Zefiro Torna was founded in 1996. It performs the European cultural heritage from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and baroque eras, choosing authentic instruments and singing, playing and improvising based on the tradition of historically informed practice.
The ensemble does, however, not limit itself to a merely historical approach but combines it with current artistic expressions. Starting out from disciplines such as literature, plastic arts, installation art, dance, ethnic and contemporary music, collaborations are set up to work around a variety of symbolic or allegorical themes, resulting in a ‘Gesamtkunst’. Zefiro Torna's creations and cd's have been praised regularly.
