ayros | RARITAS


ayros RARITAS is a collection of recordings focusing on rare instruments.
The recorded instruments belong to private collections of which in some instances only a few examples exist in the world. We travel around Europe to bring their wonderful and unique sounds to the ears of listeners through the hands of skilled performers. The chosen repertoire is specifically matched to the instrument to highlight its special qualities.
Our first release features a recording of an original Ruckers spinet from 1604. This instrument has miraculously survived to this present day and, after many years of research and preparation, has been restored to a playable state.
