Welcome to La Guirlande

Welcome to La Guirlande

This is the beginning of a new period for La Guirlande, in which they are spreading their activity in order to transmit the magic of 18th and 19th century music to the audience.

We define the identity of the ensemble as attached both to the historical period that defines our interpretations and to the present. We are convinced that the timeless quality of great works makes them appropriate for current times.

From the time being La Guirlande is present in various places throughout the web. You may follow us either on Facebook, Youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud or on this same site.

La Guirlande’s website will be a space for content, information and current news about the group, updated.
