Bojan Čičić founded the Illyria Consort to explore rare repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries from the Venetian Republic and the Habsburg Empire. The group has recently appeared at the Korkyra Baroque Festival and the Antwerp Laus Polyphoniae Festival with a programme of 16th and 17th-century Adriatic music, and has also toured Holland and Belgium extensively, performing baroque music from Vienna and Venice.

In 2014, The Illyria Consort presented “Treasures of the Monastery” at the Utrecht Early Music Festival, performing violin sonatas kept in manuscript form in the library of the Minorite monastery in Vienna and in 2015, the group traveled to Ghent to present a programme entitled “Sounds of Imperial Vienna” and performed Vivaldi: L’Estro Armonico at the Festival de Sablé.

The Illyria Consort’s debut recording of Giovanni Stefano Carbonelli’s Sonate da camera Nos. 1-6 achieved great critical acclaim and was chosen as one of Presto Classical’s “Presto Recordings of the Year” for 2017. The second volume, Sonatas 7-12, was released to similar acclaim later in 2019, and before this, a world première recording of Giovanni Giornovich’s London Violin Concertos.
