ABOUT ENCANTO MUSIC ASSOCIATION
Encanto Music brings together the artistic talents of chamber musicians from around the globe. Through exciting storytelling and relaxed concert evenings, the audience can enjoy the intermingling of different genres and cultures. Multiculturalism, in both time and space, is both a reminder of our humanity and a source of artistic inspiration.

NEW (OLD) APPROACH FOR BAROQUE MUSIC
There have been extensive studies into the performance practice of early music. The phrasing, articulation and knowledge of instruments have all developed the approach to baroque music, raising the quality of modern-day performances to a very high level. While concentrating on the technical aspects of music making, the human and emotional approaches have not received enough attention. When one sees old paintings, it is easy to see the diversity of concert scenes and ways that everyone enjoys the music. It is important for Encanto to encourage the awareness of the emotional aspects of art that brings us joy.

NEW CONCERT CONCEPTS
By changing some of the more subtle details of the traditional concert, it is possible to create an exciting new atmosphere that does not remind us of a performance where people must sit quietly and follow strict rituals of applause and dress code. By experimenting with the locations of the musicians, as well as lighting and theatrical elements, it is possible to create a new experience for audiences of all ages.

NEW COMBINATIONS OF ARTISTS
Mixing artists from different countries is a fundamental part of Encanto’s work. It creates possibilities for co-operative and inventive exchanges between the artists. Bringing high quality artists together can bear fruit that no one could imagine; we eagerly look forward to seeing what the future holds!

"Musick! That all persuading art, which sooths our griefs, inspires our joys, soft love creates, stern rage destroys, and moulds at will each stubborn heart."
