Aria Di Follia • Baroque Ensemble
ARIA DI FOLLIA is a baroque quartet composed by Paolo Rossetti Murittu (percussions), Theresia Bothe (voice), Luigi Polsini (viol), Simone Colavecchi (baroque guitar, theorbo). These four unique and exceptional musicians are involved in many important projects of the Early Music scene in Italy, France, Germany and Switzerland.
They are specialists also for their multifaceted experiences in the musical field and in their civil and social commitment. Since the first time they met, the group found affinity and cohesion, which provided the ensemble immediately with character and a lively personality.
The choice of the name represents the richness and variety of contrast, which characterizes the performing style and the repertoire of the group: going from subtle sweetness to intense desperation, embracing the wide emotional spectrum the human genius can set to music. The dynamics range from the pianissimo of a sigh to a forte full of passion or grieve. Agogics move from frantic and precise to the long time period of intense breathing.
