Barockensemble La Casella

Jedediah Allen (cornetto), Vera Hiltbrunner (soprano), and Andreas Westermann (continuo), all three having met and studied in Basel, Switzerland, formed „Ensemble La Casella“ in 2016 to perform well-known and unknown repertoire from the 16th and 17th centuries with the unique combination of voice, cornetto, and continuo. The timbre of the cornetto closely resembles that of the voice and the instrument is therefore perfectly suited to fill the role of a singer. Within our musical focus, our ensemble continues to explore early repertoire while also looking ahead to contemporary sources for opportunities to utilize our particular sound in new and exciting ways. Currently, the trio is performing three individual programs which can be heard in Austria, The Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland. Feast and Famine features mostly sacred works consisting of soprano vocal duets by 17th century Italian composers as well as solo works for each instrument respectively. This program features thematic elements based on contrasting aspects of ‘prosperity’ and ‘scarcity’ in relation to the soul, thus the title, Feast and Famine.
