period instrument collective


Istante is a European chamber ensemble formed by a new generation of period-instrument professionals drawn together by a common spirit of inquisitiveness and historical awareness. Its individual members perform internationally with prestigious period-instrument ensembles such as the English Baroque Soloists, Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Academy of Ancient Music, Europa Galante, Concerto Italiano, La Chambre Philharmonique.

Owing to its diverse cultural background, as well as its sensitivity to the specific musical idioms of each age, Istante is able to accompany audiences on a sweeping musical journey, with repertoire ranging from the late Renaissance to the present day. Its flexible formation allows for interesting and diverse programme combinations, balancing well-known classics with more original and often neglected works.
