5 Diapson & ICMA Nomination 2014

Agricola's (1445/6-1506) oeuvre set new standards for the genre of instrumental ensemble music: He was a master of the "dark style" and his compositions appeared "unusual, crazy and strange" to his peers. Ensemble Leones explores the densely woven and refined counterpoint of his textless compositions using an ensemble of period instruments.
