Piva - Music of the Renaissance

"A remarkable Renaissance music group called PIVA - if you have the chance to hear them, jump at it."              

Voluntary Arts Ireland

Formed in 2002 Piva have firmly established themselves as a leading early music ensemble. Playing throughout the UK and across Europe, the group has gained a reputation for their lively performances and entertaining shows.  

Taking late 16th century dance and ballad tunes, Piva make them ring out in the early 21st century. It’s music of the past played for today!  

Whether it’s playing at an arts festival, modern concert hall or a heritage venue,  Piva will bring the music of the 16th century to life.

“This was early music at its most entertaining”

Leicester Mercury

Bagpipes, hurdy gurdies, recorders, viol, curtals, rauschpfeifen,

crumhorns, shawms, violin - members of Piva are multi-instrumentalists bringing together the sounds and atmosphere of renaissance Europe.  

“Piva perform with style and panache.”
