Spiritato is a period instrument ensemble with a love for little-known composers. As individuals they can be found performing with specialist ensembles throughout the UK and Europe, including the Academy of Ancient Music, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Les Talens Lyriques and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique.
Spiritato enjoyed great success in 2016 with their ambitious new project "Guts and Glory". Performing throughout England, this project involving real natural trumpets and equal tension strings was enthusiastically received by audiences.
In 2014 the group released their second album on the Resonus Classics label, the world premiere recording of The Judgment of Paris by Daniel Purcell. Described by BBC Radio 3 CD Review as ‘high-quality entertainment’ the recording has received 4 star reviews from the Financial Times, Early Music Today, Bachtrack and BBC Music Magazine.
Spiritato's latest recording, "The Taste of this Nation", was released in February 2021, to be followed by "Sonatas from the Düben Collection" - soon to be available from our online shop.
