The Mezzo Ensemble aims to connect the Israeli audience with the global stream of “historically aware” performance of music by the best Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque composers. For this purpose, the band performs throughout the country with a wide range of programs, in collaboration with the best performers in their field, and with scholarly guidance. The members of the ensemble specialize in performance with medieval instruments and form a variety of collaborations with prominent performers in Israel and abroad.
In addition to promoting “ancient music” in Israel, the ensemble believes in encouraging contemporary Israeli creation alongside the preservation of the Israeli folk songs. The ensemble collaborates with active composers, recording their works and incorporating them into its programs.
