La Ninfea (Italian for “water lily”)
performs chamber music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries,
particularly rediscoveries of forgotten works. Their flexible
formation allows for a wide spectrum of baroque tone colors.
Individually, the members of La Ninfea have received competition
prizes and other awards and appeared with numerous prominent early
music ensembles and soloists, who inspired them to create their own
ensemble. Sono amante, their debut CD of newly rediscovered
cantatas and chamber music by the Bononcini brothers featuring
soprano Ulrike Hofbauer, was released in October 2011 on Thorofon
Records and received with acclaim by audiences and critics alike.
