Intesa Duo

July 8, 2024 7:00 PM

Join Intesa duo for an evening of storytelling and song from the 16th Century to the modern day. This programme of baroque, folk, contemporary, and original music arranged for viols and voice will draw you in for an interactive and explorative musical experience.

Intesa was formed at the Royal Academy of Music by Lucine Musaelian and Nathan Giorgetti. Brought together by the common passion for the sound of the viol, its combination with the voice, the overlap between folk and baroque music, and the performance of new music on viols, their programmes are centred around the art of self-accompaniment across different genres. The duo’s goal as an ensemble is to tell stories in their performances through cultivating what they know about Historical Performance practice in a contemporary context.
Since the recent founding, they have had the pleasure of being coached by Jonathan Manson, Margaret Faultless, Laurence Cummings, Peter Whelan, Liz Kenny, Jacob Heringman, and Sam Stadlen. Recent performances include the debut concert at the Students Create Festival, a recital at Fidelio Cafe, and a concert as part of the Open Academy’s music for the moment series. Future engagements include a recording session with the Voces8 Foundation, a residency at Ferrandou Musique, and participation in the Vilalte Festival in France. Recently, they were awarded the Royal Academy Chamber Fellowship for 2023-2024.
