La Vaghezza is a trio sonata ensemble playing music from the 17th and early 18th centuries, with a special interest in the unpredictability, extravagance, originality and freedom found in 17th century Italian music.

Their musical interpretations are historically informed, but always guided foremost by their common sensibility as an ensemble and their search for ‘La Vaghezza’, an aesthetic concept which describes a beauty impossible to understand or grasp: like smoke, something calling to be touched yet remaining intangible. This programme is based on the significant production of instrumental pieces throughout the 17th century in Italy, spanning the Seicento cultural period, mainly in northern Italy, around Cremona and Venice. It is presented in four distinct sections, specially curated by the ensemble and based on their recent recording described as ‘vibrant, luminous and moving… a miracle’ by Revista Ritmo Magazine.

Each Friday from January to March we welcome some of the best young ensembles from the UK and abroad to Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall for Britten Pears Arts’ Friday Lunchtime Concert series.
