Recorded live at The Hague at the 2017 REMA Showcase.
PRISMA is an ensemble of four young musicians who get together to play the particularly expressive, wacky, and colourful music of the 16th and 17th century.
In May 2015, PRISMA won 1st Prize at the International Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber Competition in Austria. Following this, they have been invited to open the Biber Festival Vienna and to perform at several Austrian Early Music venues. They have been broadcast by the Westdeutscher Rundfunk and Ö1 – Österreichischer Rundfunk. In 2016 & 2017, they take part in "EEEmerging European Ensembles" in Ambronay, with additional festival residencies in Riga, Ambronay, Bucarest and Pavia.
