The ensemble Il Zabaione musicale takes its name from a collection of music by Adriano Banchieri published in Milan in 1604. This specialist early music ensemble was formed in 2010 by Alice Borciani (Italy), Elam Rotem (Israel) and Ryosuke Sakamoto (Japan), who met during their studies at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.
The interest in the early music and in particular in Italian early baroque repertoire, led them to perform in various concerts in Italy and Switzerland.
Musicological research plays a fundamental role in the work of the ensemble, whose principal goals include the rediscovery of unexplored musical repertoires and work on original sources.
