“Tutti e Solo” is a musical ensemble established in 1989 in Poznan, Poland by clavecinist Barbara Mucha. The artistic interests of the group are connected with Baroque and early classical music. The ensemble includes four musicians (two violinists, a cellist and a clavecinist), the number of them being extended with other instrumentalists or vocalists as variously required by the repertoire. The group owns a harpsichord which is a contemporary replica of a Silbermann’s instrument from the 2nd half of the 18 c. The musicians perform using modern technique, preferring the interpretational posssibilities of today’s string instruments.
“Tutti e Solo” gives frequently concerts in Poland and abroad. The goup played in most major Polish cities, as well as in Germany, Sweden and France, and took part in several festivals like Wratislavia Cantans, Warsaw Palast Concerts, Silesian Beethoven Festival, Szczecin Castle Musical Automn, Polish Festival in Bretagne. The ensemble played with famous soloists like Flutists Philippe Bernold and Jadwiga Kotnowska, Sopranos Joanna Kozlowska, Iwona Hossa and Grazyna Flicinska-Panfil and others.
The ensemble’s first CD (“Jewels of the Polish Baroque”) was recorded and issued by DORIAN Discovery Ltd. The group made recordings for the Polish Radio, as well as arranged and performed music for the CD-Rom “The Royal Castle in Warsaw”. “Tutti e Solo” took part in the renowned program “Reisewege zur Kunst” about Poznan, realised for the German Television ARD and 3Sat.
All musicians of the ensemble are professors or teachers in the music schools, incl. Poznan Academy of Music.
