Past members

Florilegium is an early music ensemble based in London. It was founded in 1991 by the harpsichordist Neal Peres Da Costa and the flautist Ashley Solomon,[7] who is now director of the group. It specialises in period performance of Baroque and early Romantic chamber music.[3]

History[edit]

The group was founded in 1991, and gave its first performance at the Blackheath Concert Halls in that year.[3] It has since performed at the Wigmore Hall in London, and in many countries worldwide. A recording of the cello sonatas of Antonio Vivaldi with Pieter Wispelwey as soloist won an award, as did a recording of the chamber music of Georg Philipp Telemann.[3]
