Switzerland-born Corina Marti holds degrees in both recorder and harpsichord from the Musikhochschule
Luzern and has graduated from the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis where she specialised in performance of medieval
and Renaissance music with Pierre Hamon and Kathrin Bopp. She is much in demand as both performer on
variety of early flutes and keyboard instruments, and teacher. In 2003, she joined the faculty of Schola's
Department for Medieval Music as a tutor for medieval flutes and is frequently invited to teach master classes. In
addition to medieval, she enjoys performing Renaissance, Baroque and contemporary music and has appeared
both as a soloist and with various ensembles (including Jordi Savall's Hesperion XXI) all over Europe and in
Middle East. She has recorded seventeenth-century music from Lombardy and flute sonatas by J. S. Bach.
Trained in classical guitar playing from an early age, Michal Gondko eventually focused on early plucked
instruments of the lute family and has made his initial experiences with early music (including a CD of late
Renaissance Polish lute music voted »Early Music Release of the Year 2003« by the Polish Recording Producers
Association) in his native Poland. Based since 1997 in Basel (Switzerland), he graduated from the Schola
Cantorum Basiliensis, where he studied Renaissance lute with Hopkinson Smith and medieval plucked instruments with Crawford Young. Dedicating himself chiefly to the performance of pre-1500 music, he nevertheless
enjoys projects ranging from Renaissance to contemporary music and has appeared as accompanist and continuo
player with various singers and ensembles (including Jordi Savall's La Capella Reial de Cataluña). As a soloist, he
is primarily interested in exploring neglected repertoire for Renaissance lute.
Since 2000, Corina Marti and Michal Gondkohave been working as a team directing La Morra, one of
Europe's leading formations for late medieval and early Renaissance music (www.lamorra.info), jointly contributing to the rapid establishment of the ensemble's reputation for evocative and thoroughly-researched programming as well as »virtuoso« and »seductive« (Diapason) interpretations. Under their leadership, La Morra has
toured extensively in Europe and has recorded several enthusiastically received CDs of late medieval and early
Renaissance repertoire including Flour de Beaulté
