Les Muffatti (B)

baroque orchestra

Les Muffatti is a Belgian chamber orchestra specializing in baroque music. It was founded in 1996 at the Brussels Conservatory by a dozen musicians who wanted to defend baroque music. The name of the ensemble is inspired by the German composer of Savoyard origin Georg Muffat (1653 - 1704). The orchestra was conducted for 10 years by the great specialist of Renaissance and Baroque music, Peter Van Heyghen, and today the musicians themselves are responsible for their artistic direction. Their recordings have won many awards.
