Les Muffatti dedicates all its energy and expertise to an ambitious artistic project: the development of a contemporary interpretation and performance practice of its chosen repertoire, to approximate as far as possible the original intentions of the composers using means available at their time. The ensemble uses all the historical and musicological documentation and information brought to light so far.
An effort to constantly rediscover and revalorize
often forgotten compositions of the past feeds its concert
program choices. Sustained and detailed historical research
elucidates the refined play of reciprocal influences between
the great European musical schools and the styles of the
past. Experiments with instrument building, and more importantly
with bow making, will literally have their resonance in
the near future in our perception and representation of
the »early« sound image, and in its articulation
and phrasing. The recording of the compositions eventually
crowns this long process and fixes a long-matured and carefully
thought-out version, which we consider worthy to remember
as an honest, if never a definitive attempt to approximate
the music in the purity of its original conception.
