La Morra, an international ensemble founded in 2000 at the world-famous Swiss university of early music “Schola Cantorum Basiliensis” on the initiative of Polish lutenist Michał Gondko, is well-established as one of the leading European groups specialised in the late Middle Ages and early Renaissance music. In their artistic work, La Morra combines the achievements of historical musicology with the ideal of creative music making subordinate to the nature of the repertoire performed. La Morra regularly performs at renowned festivals and concert series. The ensemble has toured all over Europe, as well as the United States, China and Japan. La Morra’s phonographic productions are appreciated by the audience. It is evidenced by such phonographic awards as “Diapason D’Or”, “Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik”, “Noah Greenberg Award” (an award granted by the American Musicological Society), as well as nominations for the “Gramophone Award”, “International Classical Music Award” and consistently high ratings in the international music press. To date, La Morra has released thirteen albums, the most recent of which (“Mirabilia musica”) is devoted to the musical culture of Cracow in the early fifteenth century. Working under the joint artistic leadership of Corina Marti and Michał Gondko, the ensemble is based in Basel, the cultural capital of Switzerland, a place with over 80 years of scientific, artistic and didactic tradition in the field of early music.
