“Sua Dolce Maestà” is an early music ensemble with historical trumpets based in Germany and the Netherlands that performs and promotes ancient music with historical trumpets. The name “Sua Dolce Maestà” plays on the idea that the trumpet, which has long been a symbol of power, can also enchant with beautiful melodies. Through the trumpet, the musicians radiate strength, paint horrific battles, tell stories about their feats and sing about love. Sua Dolce Maestà is made up of historically informative performance professionals united by the use of rhetoric and common musical ideas and approaches. The members of the ensemble are graduates of the Hochschule für Künste Bremen (Germany) and the Koninklijk Conservatorium the Hague (Netherlands). Their portfolio includes regular concerts with well-known early music ensembles throughout Europe.
