Whether in a chamber music instrumentation or with baroque opulence, whether with instrumental music or together with vocal soloist – the aspiring young orchestra under the direction of the violinist Robin Peter Müller stands for energetic and overwhelming interpretations of the music from the 17th and 18th century. Historically informed the musicians are looking for opportunities to transfer the emotions and contents of the past centuries into contemporary interpretations which have thrilled both audience and critics alike.
The ensemble cooporates regularly with renowned instrumentalists and singers like Hille Perl, the Vieanna Boys’ Choir, Regula Mühlemann, Mahan Esfahani and Jan Vogler, Dorothee Oberlinger, Dorothee Mields, Anna Prohaska, Maurice Steger and Stefan Temmingh.
