Camerata Alma Viva

Back in 2009, a group of musicians studying under Gabor Takacs-Nagy decided to take a new approach to music. Unbound by restraints, they set out to embrace tradition without being confined by it.  While others followed a conductor, they led themselves. While others sat, they stood.  Soon, what started out as a modest ensemble became a sixteen-string orchestra, spanning nine nationalities: Alma Viva Camerata.

Today Alma Viva adopt revolutionary rehearsal techniques including meditation, improvisation and theatre, placing spirit and movement at the centre of the music.
