Info for La Notte: Concertos & Pastorales for Christmas Night



Bojan Čičić and the Illyria Consort’s latest Delphian recording revels in the great variety of musical styles and traditions that grew up around Christmas and its related feasts in Catholic Europe in the seventeenth century – a time when the introduction of ‘rustic’ effects into instrumental music changed the sound of Christmas forever.

The vivid theatricality of Baroque evocations of the shepherds and their milieu and the unusual combinations of instruments in much of this music, here given in performances brimming with energy and the joy of rediscovery, make this a Christmas album to reach for every year.

Illyria Consort



Bojan Čičić & Illyria Consort
founded The Illyria Consort to explore rare repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries from the Venetian Republic and the Habsburg Empire. The group has recently appeared at the Korkyra Baroque Festival and the Antwerp Laus Polyphoniae Festival with a programme of 16th and 17th-century Adriatic music, and has also toured Holland and Belgium extensively, performing baroque music from Vienna and Venice.

In 2014, The Illyria Consort presented "Treasures of the Monastery" at the Utrecht Early Music Festival, performing violin sonatas kept in manuscript form in the library of the Minorite monastery in Vienna and in 2015, the group traveled to Ghent to present a programme entitled "Sounds of Imperial Vienna" and performed Vivaldi: L'Estro Armonico at the Festival de Sablé.

The Illyria Consort’s debut recording of Giovanni Stefano Carbonelli’s Sonate da camera Nos. 1-6 achieved great critical acclaim and was chosen as one of Presto Classical’s “Presto Recordings of the Year” for 2017. The second volume, Sonatas 7-12, will be released later in 2019, but before this, they look forward to the release of their second disc in March 2019, a world première recording of Giovanni Giornovich’s London Violin Concertos.

Bojan Čičić
Known for his intelligent and virtuosic playing on both the violin and viola d'amore, Bojan Cicic specialises in repertoire ranging from the late 16th century to the Romantic period.

He has been a guest leader and soloist with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Budapest Festival Orchestra and appears regularly as a leader and director with the Academy of Ancient Music and the European Union Baroque Orchestra.

He has featured as a leader on numerous recordings with ensemble Florilegium, La Nuova Musica, and the Arcangelo Consort. His recording of J.S. Bach’s Concerto for two violins with Rachel Podger was recently named the best available recording by BBC Music Magazine.

Bojan formed his own group, the Illyria Consort, to explore rare repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries from the Venetian Republic and Habsburg Empire. They have performed at the Utrecht Early Music Festival, the Korkyra Baroque Festival, Festival Laus Polyphoniae, and at the Festival de Sablé. The Illyria Consort’s debut recording of Giovanni Stefano Carbonelli’s Sonate da camera Nos. 1-6 achieved great critical acclaim and was chosen as one of Presto Classical’s “Presto Recordings of the Year” for 2017. The second volume, Sonatas 7-12, will be released later in 2019, but before this, Bojan will be the soloist in Illyria Consort’s second release in March 2019, a world première recording of Giovanni Giornovich’s London Violin Concertos.

In 2016 Bojan was appointed Professor of Baroque Violin at the Royal College of Music, and is passionate about training the next generation of instrumentalists in historically-informed playing styles. In April 2018 he was appointed the leader of the Academy of Ancient Music.

Bojan plays a violin by Francesco Ruggieri from the 1680's, kindly loaned to him by the Jumpstart Junior Foundation.
