The go-to guide for early music



Intesa was formed at the Royal Academy of Music by Lucine Musaelian and Nathan Giorgetti. Brought together by our common passion for the sound of the viol, its combination with the voice, the overlap between folk and baroque music, and the performance of new music on viols, our programmes are centred around the art of self-accompaniment across different genres. Our goal as an ensemble is to tell stories in our performances through cultivating what we know about Historical Performance practice in a contemporary context.

Since our recent founding, we have had the pleasure of being coached by Jonathan Manson, Margaret Faultless, Laurence Cummings, Peter Whelan, Liz Kenny, Jacob Heringman, and Sam Stadlen.

Recent performances include our debut concert at the Students Create Festival, a recital at Heath Street Baptist Church, and a concert at Fidelio Cafe in London. Recently, we were awarded the Royal Academy Chamber Fellowship for 2023-2024.
