The Quintet Scharfes Es stands for precious and rare distinction of making their philological running on period instruments. This research stems from the need to rediscover the historic musical sounds and tone colors typical of late classicism, in particular of that historical period that lies between the end of the rationality of the Enlightenment and the first stirrings of romance. A research made possible only through the use of period instruments (originals and copies) that are different from the modern ones not only in an aesthetic and visual materials of construction and physical structure but also with regard to pitch, loudness and timbre. This also allows you to reflect the will of the composer reconstructing the original appearance of these wonderful masterpieces. We must not forget that every melodic line, every choice of timbre, each harmonic approach was determined by the unique characteristics of the instrument at the time. A fascinating way to allow the listener to relive, acoustically and visually, unrivaled sound and atmosphere of the past.
