Welcome to Ansámbl Luython, The premier Ensamble Group Specializing in Eastern European Renaissance Music.
Ansámbl Luython is the USA’s premier performing group of Eastern European Renaissanc, using original
instruments, pitch, and temperament. The group relies on extensive
musicological, organological and linguistic research in an attempt to perform the music in its original
spirit. One of our trademarks is that every instrument is commissioned in customized form that are as
close to historical museum pieces or musical treatise as possible. Our group does not play at the pitches
and temperament that other HIP group uses because of convenience. We believe that musical
instruments serve the music, not the other way around. Subsequently all instruments of the group are
unique. We commission our instruments not just from the best luthiers, but also those that will go the
extra mile in their craft. The unique instruments that we use also pose challenges to our musicians that
other HIP groups will not encounter.
For Ansámbl Luython, we consider ourselves as spiritual descendants of pioneer groups and individuals
from the dawn of the early music revival movement. Our motto is a!=392Hz.
