Ensamble ad fontes.jpg


Ad Fontes was grounded in 2010 under the name 'Le Elèments'. The group participated in few competitions and presentations, such as international Telemann Wettbewerb 2013 (Bärenreiter Urtext Award) and International Early Music Competition in l'Acquila (1st award and audience's award)), as well as IYAP presentation 2014. They were invited to give concerts in festivals as Young Euro Classics, Solisti acquilani, Schaffhauser Festspiele, Musik und Mensch, SEVICQ Brezice, Potsdamer Festspiele Sanssouci, Freunde Alter Musik Basel, among others. 

Since 2017 they organize their own concert season in Kartäuserkirche in Basel.

They perform various repertoire on period instruments, written between 1550 and 1750. In the last time they are incorporating also early traditional music in their programmes, as well as new pieces written by the composer Bardia Charaf.

Occasionally they collaborate also with the dance company Chorea Basileae.
