Victoria Ensemble was found by soprano Viktorie Dugranpere. It started to be active in 2009, in actual cast it works from 2015. 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 (maximum of 12 sigers) or the principal Viktorie Dugranpere as a soloist. Victoria Ensemble in various assemblies has rehearsed and successfully performed numerous musical and musically dramatic programmes of Renaissance, Baroque and Classical period. It collaborates with Historical dance ensembles (Chorea Historica, A Balli, En Garde! etc.), with instrumental Early music ensembles (Music Florea, Concerto Aventino etc.), with early music renowned conductors (Jakub Kydlíček, Marek Štryncl etc.) and with artists, designers and painters as well.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.
