Founded in 2015 by the violinist Daniel Pinteño, this young ensembles aim to provide an accurate and revealing point of view of the music as it was conceived. From Castello to Tartini, from Schmelzer to Mozart, from Lully to Rameau, Concerto 1700 was born with the intention to perform works from the early baroque to the dawn of Romanticism, for that Concerto 1700 makes a optimum use of all stylistic resources at their fingertips, including the presence at concerts of original period instruments.

Concerto 1700 highlights by the recovering work of music little known nowadays but, in turn, pure, intense and exciting. Authors who, for one reason or another, were relegated in the shadow of oblivion, are now rescued and performed by this group respecting own musical canons of the time. That unique sound and freshness are embodied and recreated by Concerto 1700 in each of their performances.

Recently, they have been awarded with the FestClásica 2017 Award in the category of Early Music. For the next season they have booked performances in the most important spanish festivals as well as the recording of their first CD.
