PIVA - The Renaissance Collective

About PIVA – The Renaissance Collective:
Since forming in 2002, PIVA have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading early music ensembles and they specialise in the popular dance and ballad music of the late renaissance. Playing an array of period instruments, their fresh, innovative and energetic approach has captured the imagination of audiences wherever they perform. They present lively and entertaining shows with a unique blend of music and historical anecdote. Multi-instrumentalists, with backgrounds in renaissance, classical and roots music, they combine their influences to create music of the past played for today.

PIVA have played at various festivals, music societies and venues throughout the UK including The London International Early Music Festival, The Dome Stage at Snape Maltings, The National Centre for the Folk Arts and Brighton Early Music Festival. PIVA have also played across Europe, appearing at the Este’s International Arts Festival (Italy), Middelalderfestival (Norway), Rencontres de Maitres Sonneurs Festival (France) and Lutherfest (Germany) as well as many other events and locations.
