focus baroque

Ensemble "focus baroque" was founded in 2004 by Estonian harpsichordist Iren Lill and German viola da gamba player Holger Faust-Peters. Duo's repertoire mainly consists of music from the Baroque period but they have also performed pieces by contemporary composers. Faust-Peters and Lill have performed numerous concerts all over Estonia and Germany. The critics have especially praised the duo's delicate sound and richly nuanced dynamics.

In February 2010, "focus baroque" released their debut CD Anno 1698 under the record company ARS Produktion. The CD includes German chamber music from 1687–1698. Their second CD Avec Privilege du Roy with music by Marin Marais, François Couperin, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Louis Heudelinne and Louis de Caix d´Hervelois was released in 2012.
