Ciaramella CD Recording 2011

Praised for performing intricate fifteenth-century counterpoint "with the ease of jazz musicians improvising on a theme," Ciaramella brings to life medieval and early Renaissance music from historical events and manuscripts. Its members are united by the conviction that every composition conceals a rich story waiting to be unlocked through historical research and speculative performance.

Founded on a core of winds - shawm, sackbut, recorder, organ, and voice - Ciaramella takes its name from the Italian shawm and from a fifteenth-century song about a beautiful girl whose clothes are full of holes. When she opens her mouth, she knocks men flat.

Directed by Adam and Rotem Gilbert, from the Early Music Program at USC Thornton School of Music in Los Angeles, the ensemble performs at major festivals throughout the United States, Italy, and Germany. Performances highlights have included the Cleveland Museum of Art, Bloomington Early Music Festival, Oberlin's Baroque Performance Institute, the Lute Society of America, the American Musicologoical Society in Seattle, and the Amherst Early Music Festival. In 2007 they gave their New York debut at Music Before 1800 and performed at the Tage Alter Musik Festival in Regensburg.
