Since its foundation in 1997, Dialogos, the vocal ensemble directed and created by Katarina Livljanić 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 both women’s and men’s vocal ensembles. Since its first projects Dialogos has been acclaimed by critics (in journals such as Le Monde, Le Figaro, Diapason, Los Angeles Times) and has toured in many European countries (in all main early music festivals in France (Ambronay, Saintes, Rencontres du Thoronnet, Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, Voix et Route romane…), Germany (Romanische Sommer Cologne, Herne… ), Holland (Utrecht Festival), Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Croatia (Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Zadar), Belgum, USA, Canada, North Africa and Latin America), including radio and television broadcasts.

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). Current programs of the ensemble focus on the archaic medieval repertoires : plainchant from Southern Europe and musical theatre.
