Since its foundation in 1997, Dialogos, the vocal ensemble directed and
created by Katarina Livljanic, has emerged as one of the most outstanding
and original medieval music ensembles of the new generation. The
ensemble’s projects link new musicological research with an innovative
approach to medieval music performance, a theatrical
dimension, and an expressive musicality. Dialogos is composed of
women’s or men’s vocal ensembles, depending on each specific
project. Since its first projects Dialogos has been acclaimed by critics (in
journals such as Le Monde, Le Figaro, Diapason, The New York Times…)
and has toured in most European countries, in the USA, Canada, North
Africa and Latin America, in all the major early music festivals (Saintes,
Utrecht, Ambronay, Royal Festival Hall of London, Metropolitain Museum
and Lincoln Center in New York, Cité de la Musique in Paris, Quinçena
Musical de San Sebastián, Festival de Música Antigua de Barcelona,
Edinburgh International Festival…),including radio and television

Their CDs Terra Adriatica (released on the Empreinte
digitale label), Lombards & Barbares and La Vision de Tondal (released
on the Arcana label), Chant Wars (a coproduction with
the ensemble Sequentia, released on the Sony-BMG label) have received
press distinctions in international music magazines, including Diapason
d’or, Choc du Monde de la musique, Goldberg 5 stars.
Mécénat Musical Société Générale is the principal sponsor of the
ensemble Dialogos. Dialogos also receives subsidies from the DRAC Ilede-
France - Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication. Dialogos is
ensemble-in-residence at the Fondation Royaumont (2011-2014).
