    The Accademia Bizantina was founded in 1983 in Ravenna and today is regarded as one of the most versatile and select ensembles using original instruments which are required for the Italian repertoire of the 17th and 18th century: stylistic accuracy, imaginative interpretation and technical perfection are the particular characteristics which are appreciated in the playing of the Accademia. 
    The Accademia Bizantina has participated at all the important Italian and international concert series and festivals and has performed concerts in Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, England, Israel, Mexico, Holland, Switzerland, USA, Turkey and Hungary. Furthermore the ensemble has made numerous recordings for ARTS, Denon and RCA, as well as for radio and television broadcasting companies. 
    Since January 1996 the Accademia Bizantina has been directed by its harpsichordist Ottavio Dantone.

    Today there are still a lot of interesting facts that can be discovered in 16th century music. Ottavio Dantone and his ensemble Accademia Bizantina now have recorded a selection of this repertoire on historic instruments exclusively for ARTS MUSIC. Compositions from famous composers like Girolamo Frescobaldi or Johann Hieronymus Kapsberger are combined with works from rather forgotten artists like Giovanni Maria Trabaci and Andrea Falconiero.
    Accademia Bizantina was founded in Ravenna in 1983 and at the beginning led by their own members. The entry of the harpsichord player Ottavio Dantone in the nineties brought about a change for the ensemble. The Accademia assigned the leadership to him and expanded its repertoire immensely. Today the Accademia Bizantina is one of the most important ensembles for historic practices. For their ARTS recordings they won notable international prices.
