The Ascoli Ensemble
dir. Sasha Zamler-Carhart
A vocal ensemble specialized in rare medieval music. It gained international fame in 2009 for its reconstruction and world premiere of the 14th-century Ascoli Piceno fragments. The ensemble was ensemble-in-residence at MIT in 2011 and University of Heidelberg in 2016. Its first CD "I Frammenti Ascolani" was released in 2010. Its second CD "Veneto 1440" was released in 2014, commissioned by the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
