This ensemble was founded in 1982 by Sabine and Tuomas Kaipainen. Its name is derived from the equivalent term in Baroque music which means the projection of Baroque rhetoric art to the art of composition as directly as possible: music as rhetoric in sound. This knowledge is a continual source of inspiration for their new, vital and communicative interpretations.

Baroque music in the original sound: luxuriant, colorful. Tuned to chamber pitch A = 392 Hz, Werckmeister II
