Ensemble LuiniA Banquet for All Tastes.

An assortment of musical delights from Italy, France, and Spain in the early 1500s, as well as England in the age of Elizabeth. Works by Tromboncino, Josquin, Sermisy, Francesco da Milano, Cabezón, Ortiz, Holborne, others.

Ensemble Luini is named after Bernardino Luini (ca. 1480–1532), an Italian painter who created an exquisite altarpiece depicting the Madonna and Child surrounded by angels playing lutes and recorders—the core instruments of Ensemble Luini, a combination we enrich with early keyboards. We specialize in music of Luini’s era.
