Trio da Fusignano was founded in 2000. The name of the ensemble is derived from the birthplace of the Italian composer Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713). The ensemble received coaching from a.o. Ricardo Kanji, Wouter Möller, Philippe Pierlot en Rainer Zipperling.
The trio aims for a fresh and historically informed performance by studying old treatises, using copies of historical instruments and playing as much as possible from early notation. Trio da Fusignano focusses on chamber music from the 17th and 18th centuries, especially the music from Arcangelo Corelli and that of contemporaries and later composers being influenced by it. They regularly seek collaboration with external musicians such as singers or other instrumentalists.
Besides their work as performers, the group members are passionate about educating people of all ages in music, whether that means teaching the basics of rhythm, melody and harmony, or developing musicians in their ability to communicate their love of music to their audiences.
