Accademia de’ Dissonanti was founded in 2020. As an ensemble and artistic institution, it presents concerts, publications, and educational academies centred on historical performance and creative research under the leadership of artistic director Elinor Frey. In the 2022-2023 season, Accademia de’ Dissonanti explores music by Jean Baur, Vivaldi, and others with the participation of specialists in historical performance. Following its January 2020 tour under the name of Elinor Frey and Friends, its October 2022 tour features “Boccheriniana” 2, a program dedicated to the charming and fascinating music of Luigi Boccherini in concert in Toronto, Montréal, Vancouver, Victoria, Kénogami, Waterloo, and Salt Spring Island. In Summer 2023, Accademia de’ Dissonanti will host “Early Cello Gathering”, an in-person master class academy dedicated to exploring the early Italian cello.
