The ensemble Viatoribus was founded in 2015 by experienced students within the community of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, university for early music
in Basel, Switzerland.
The flexible ensemble has since played numerous concerts in Switzerland, Germany, Norway and Austria. Their performances on period instruments are closely coupled with theoretical knowledge of the repertoire’s historical context, while they keep a strong focus on giving the audiences a vivid and inspiring concert experience. With the concert programme "Ad Austro", consisting of music from the Italian early baroque period, they travelled on a tour of Norway in March - April 2016, playing concerts in 7 cities, including a collaborative concert with the choir of Kristiansand Cathedral and a pedagogical seminar at Asker culture school. In April 2017, they participated in the renowned international competition for early music, H.I.F. Biber Wettbewerb, in
St. Florian by Linz, Austria. With their programme "Ad Austriam", based on music from the court of Vienna in the 17th century, they won one of the main prizes, the Romanus Weichlein Preis. The concert season of 2018 was also extensive, with two new concert programmes and performances at concert cycles in Switzerland and Germany; a representational concert for the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis; and tours to Austria, Lithuania and Colombia.
