Latinitas Nostra

On Markellos Chryssikos’ initiative, the ensemble Latinitas Nostra was founded to provide a platform for young Greek early music musicians. The ensemble has worked with Lykourgos Angelopoulos’s Choir, among others, and performed music from the period of Venetian rule in Crete. Other performances include the first revival of Antonio Caldara’s opera Olimpiade (Megaron Musikis Athens, 2009), the first staged performance of Benedetto Marcello’s cantata Cassandra (Days of Music Rhodes, 2010), and L’incoronazione di Poppea by Claudio Monteverdi (Athens Festival, 2011). Latinitas Nostra’s discography includes the albums Lamento with mezzo-soprano Romina Basso and I Dilettanti with countertenor Xavier Sabata.
