Overview

Accademia Bizantina, the Ravenna-based period instrument ensemble, is directed by Ottavio Dantone. Their performances are typified by virtuoso playing and dramatic flair, but never to the detriment of their wonderfully polished tone. It is not surprising therefore that the countertenor Andreas Scholl enjoys working with them so much. HarrisonParrott have arranged a number of high profile tours for this combination often in conjunction with Andreas Scholl, including programmes of works by Handel in Salzburg and Dresden and Bach in Istanbul to name but three.
