‘Repicco’ was formed by the violinist Kinga Ujszászi and the lutenist Jadran Duncumb. As 'Repicco', they show that many colours and expressions can also be achieved with few instruments, while enjoying the musical freedom and flexibility this allows them.
Kinga and Jadran focus on the diverse repertoire featuring the lute, theorbo or guitar and violin, trying to create fluid and varied programmes of both familiar and unfamiliar music. Passion, originality and a distinct flair for baroque music are the trademark qualities that distinguish Repicco.
Repicco were selected as finalists of the 2013 York Early Music Competition and as Ambronay EEEmerging Artists in 2015. They have won the EEEmerging Audience prize in the Ambronay Festival of the same year. The latter success has given them the chance to give recitals and workshops in Romania, Italy, France, Germany and Latvia and the UK in the past year.
The repicco is a strumming technique on the baroque guitar.
