Improviso presents dynamic programmes of chamber music from the 17-18th centuries alongside improvising in styles from the same period. We aim to capture something of the vibrancy and presence of live improvisation within our performances of composed chamber music. If you're interested in seeing some sample programmes, please visit our Contact page and send us a message. 

Our repertoire ranges from kaleidoscopic music of seventeenth-century Venice...

...to the elegance of eighteenth-century French baroque music...

...alongside improvised divisions (variations) over English ground basses (repeating bass lines)...

...and improvisations over earlier harmonic formulae such as Conde Claros from sixteenth-century Spain.
