We are Ensemble Arava, a German-Israeli baroque ensemble consisting of soprano, violin, cello and harpsichord. We became fascinated with the musical paradise that was the Habsburg Empire in 2017. We were preparing for the H.I.F. Biber Competition in Austria, where we were awarded a special prize. It was for this occasion that we first delved into the baroque music of that region and discovered its rich variety of repertoire for our group. This CD is a bouquet of our favourite pieces.
