THE MODERN VOICE OF MEMORY.
Founded in 2012 by international musician,s gathered in The Netherlands for their studies, Seconda Prat!ca has become one of the leading ensembles of the new generation of early music performers.
The ensemble’s main goal is to bridge the gaps between performers and audience, revitalizing western musical heritage by bringing it back to a shared living experience. We achieve this through a continuous mixing of media, performance, research and musical excellence.
Since 2013 Seconda Prat!ca has become part of the EEEmerging project, an initiative of the European Comission to support young developping ensemble specializing in Early Music.
The ensemble has performed in some of the top European festivals such as the Festival d’Ambronay (France), Göttingen Handel Festspiel (Germany), Stockholm Early Music (Sweden), Utrecht Oude Muziek (The Netherlands), Festival Reencontros (Portugal). Seconda has been feaured in various news-editions (Voolskrant and Público), radio-broadcasters (Radio France, Antena2 and Opium 4) as well as television (CultureBox, RTP2 and RTVNH). Their debut album, “Nova Europa” has been released in October 2016 with the Ambronay Label.
Since 2016 they have become the official organizers of the Amsterdam Early Music Days and are currently the resident ensemble of the Splendor concert hall in Amsterdam.
