Ensemble [IT] [EN]
doppiopunto seravezza
Doppiopunto Ensemble brings together baroque music performer Alessandro Carta (organ) and Jumei Liao (harpsichord).
The duo transcribes and performs the works of Baroque composers such as Vivaldi, Handel, Rameau, Angerer. Performed transcriptions are new and entirely self-produced, and are the result of a careful study of the original score and an accurate assessment of sounds that these two instruments can achieve when played together.
Although in the literature there are already works for two keyboard instruments, choosing to play transcriptions is dictated primarily by the desire to play music that was originally intended for other instruments (for example, string orchestra in the case of Vivaldi) thereby altering itst sounds. This also permits balance and harmonization of the two instruments in the best possible way.

Doppiopunto Ensemble performs in public having held a number of concerts since 2010.
In 2012 the Ensemble played for the inauguration of the new organ in Seravezza (LU), Italy, built by the organ builder Nicola Puccini (Pisa).
