& instrumental ensemble
Victoria Ensemble was found in September 2009 by Viktorie Dugranpere. The ensemble always drew attention for its uniquely dramaturgically developed performances, which were accompanied by theatrical inputs or dance insertions. The originality of the programmes on itself is a guiding principle of the ensemble. We renew premieres of old works, draw up unusual projects and bring up compositions seldom performed or vastly forgotten. The musical taste of the previous centuries changed so fast it threw an enormous quantity of inventive authors and beautiful music into depths of oblivion. One of the goals of Victoria Ensemble is to rediscover, relive and remind of those interesting pieces. We tend highly on a sensitive approach to these works as well as an informed interpretation and practice, and nonetheless the benefit for the modern day. All the instrumentalists perform on historical instruments or their copies. They accompany in need the whole vocal body or the principal Viktorie Dugranpere as a soloist. Now Victoria Ensemble consists maximum of 12 singers and instrumental accompaniment. All these collaborating singers are at the same time able soloists with much experience in the Early music. Victoria Ensemble in various assemblies has rehearsed and successfully performed numerous musical and musically dramatic programmes of Renaissance, Baroque and Classical period. It collaborate with Historical dance ensembles (Chorea Historica, A Balli, En Garde! etc.), with instrumental Early music ensembles (Music Florea, Concerto Aventino etc.) and with early music renomed conductors (Jakub Kydlíček, Marek Štryncl etc.). It presents itself regularly within Czech and foreign festivals and concert cycles. In April 2018 represented Victoria Ensemble Czech culture within Sharjah Heritage Days festival in United Arab Emirates.
