is composed of qualified musicians or teachers from the higher conservatoires of Brussels, Paris and The Hague. Preferring the interpretation of trio sonatas originating from the baroque period, the ensemble does not however ignore the historical tradition of arrangements and transcriptions, and indeed reserves a special place for these in its concert programmes. Their first CD recording, Exercitium, dedicated to J.S. Bach, has been published in 2007. Laterna Magica performs regularly in various concert halls and festivals throughout Europe and has performed several times in Asia (Vietnam, India, Singapore, China, Chuncheon International Early Music Festival, South Korea) and in Latin America (the Encuentro musical Boliviano-Europeo in La Paz and Festival Misiones de Chiquitos in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, Festival Esteban Salas in La Habana, Cuba, Semaine de la Francophonie, Brazil). During these trips beyond European borders the musicians from the ensemble have also developed an educational project within certain conservatoires consisting of lectures and master classes based on both baroque and contemporary music.
