Welcome !

Ensemble Rost was formed in the shared interest of exploring the more seldomly played repertoire for violin, viola and basso continuo, with the special sound range it gives. The group has enjoyed immensely going into the depths of the exciting Rost Manuscript, with its early Stylus Phantasticus repertoire, carefully investigating the different possibilities for basso continuo realization as well as the melodic lines, since some parts in the manuscript due to tear and wear remain a mystery.

The credo of Ensemble Rost is to explore the original repertoire written for its instrumentation, though the ensemble also enjoys playing other less dogmatic programmes covering the period from early baroque to the late 18th century. The danish/french/german ensemble is based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
