AVERI is a Copenhagen-based duo that shares a great passion and interest in exploring the ​world of female composers from the Baroque and Classical era. The question they asked ​themselves is why this music was so rarely performed in our times and why the female ​composers have not been more often included in the programs of today.The music by Isabella ​Leonarda, Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, Anna Bon di Venezia, Wilhelmine von Beyreuth and ​Marieta Morosina Priuli (just mentioning a few) clearly has an immense quality and beauty that ​should be shared much more often with the modern audience.

AVERI was invited to play at the Danish festival Rudersdals Sommerkoncerter in 2021. They ​performed a program with the title "Barokkens kvinder "(the Women of baroque) featuring ​female composers from early to late baroque. The concert was broadcasted live via ​"Livekoncerten" on Youtube and Facebook.
