The indefinite concept of La Vaghezza (vagueness) fully describes the aesthetics of this ensemble, characterised by spontaneity and suprisic sonic atmospheres. Their focus is on Italian music of the 17th century, a repertoire which allows ample room for improvisation and great fantasy. Their intense musical research often leads them to the extreme interpretations. The high individual quality of the five musicians brings a technical precision and communicative energy that places them among the most interesting groups on original instruments of the moment.

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.
Since their founding in 2016 they have performed in Europe’s most esteemed early music festivals and concert series such as Utrecht Early Music Festival, Bruges MA Festival, Monteverdi Festival Cremona, Gottingen Handel Festspiele, Ambronay Festival, Innsbruck Festival, Buxton Festival, Festival MiTo, Auditorium de Lyon, Cité de la Voix Vezelay, Thessaloniki Baroque Festival, Società Aquilana Barattelli. They were the first group to be awarded all three prizes at the prestigious Handel Gottingen Competition (2018) and were awarded first prize in the Maurizio Pratola International Competition (2016).
The members of La Vaghezza are all highly sought after instrumentalists in their own right, working with internationally renowned artists in the world’s most celebrated concert halls. The five musicians take an equal role in directing the group musically, and the two violins play first and second violins interchangeably.
La Vaghezza are grateful to have been supported by the EEEmerging young artists scheme since 2017. Their debut album ‘Sculpting the Fabric’ covers the Italian 1600s and was released on Ambronay Editions in March 2021.
