The passion of music can have the power to change people’s names! Such was the case of the renowned trombonist from Bologna, Ascanio Cavallari, who played the instrument with such brilliance that everybody dubbed him Ascanio Trombetti.


Ercole Nisini, another native of the Apennines, also has a predilection for old trombones, the so-called sackbuts, and his love of music has determined his life. After moving to Dresden he established Instrumenta Musica with which he regularly performs at the famous Frauenkirche.


For their Prague performance, Nisini’s brasses will join their forces with the vocalists of Cappella Mariana, directed by Vojtěch Semerád. The Prague church of Sts Simon and Jude with its balconies and organ loft is as inspiring for the riveting polychoral techniques as the Dresden temple.
