STILE ANTICO (UK)
Stile Antico burst onto the musical scene in July 2005 with competition success at the York Early Music Festival, and in a single decade has established itself as one of the world's most accomplished and innovative vocal ensembles. Working without a conductor, its twelve members have thrilled audiences across the globe with their fresh, vibrant and moving performances of Renaissance polyphony.
Based in London, Stile Antico is much in demand and enjoys a busy international touring schedule performing at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, including Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Wigmore Hall, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Cité de la Musique, Palais des Beaux Arts, BBC Proms and Boston Early Music Festival. The group has premiered works by Nico Muhly and Huw Watkins, and collaborated with performers as diverse as Fretwork, B’Rock, Marino Formenti and Sting.
Stile Antico’s bestselling recordings on the Harmonia Mundi label have earned numerous accolades including the Gramophone Award for Early Music, the Diapason d’or de l’année, the Edison Klassiek Award and the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik, and have twice received Grammy® nominations.
