The Hathor Consort, which takes its name from the Egyptian mother goddess Hathor, was formed by Romina Lischka in 2012. Under her artistic direction, this ensemble is dedicated to performing music from the Renaissance and Baroque centred around the viola da gamba.
The Hathor Consort presented their first programme, “Consort Songs and Fantasias by William Byrd”, with the countertenor Marnix De Cat in the early music festival Netwerk Oude Muziek in 2013. Their first recording, Dowland’s “Lachrimae”, was well received by the press (IRR Outstanding Recording, Klara nomination, 4 diapasons).
The Hathor Consort performs at festivals, such as Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci, Festival van Vlaanderen Gent, Festival van Vlaaderen Mechelen, Festival Trigonale, York Early Music Festival, Oude Muziek Utrecht, MA Festival Brugge, Festival de Sablé and in venues, including Filharmonia Narodowa (Warsaw Philharmonic), Jeneusse Österreich/Wiener Konzerthaus, BOZAR in Brussels, Philharmonie Essen, Philharmonie Köln, Muziekcentrum de Bijloke Gent or Wigmore Hall.
