Ensemble Barokki NORD – SÜD / L’augellino
The baroque ensemble Nord-Süd (North-South) consists of German and Scandinavian musicians, all of which made a name for themselves as specialists for old music in their home countries. It is the first ensemble of its kind in all of Europe and was founded in 2007, on a concert tour in Denmark with conductor Ton Koopman.
Repertoire and program change in cast according to the requirements. Currently the following programs can be booked:
1. Viva Vivaldi!
Virtuous music for solo violin, solo cello and soprano. Vivaldi at his best, so to speak! Works: Violin Concerto, Cello Concerto, Cantatas: "Lungi dal vago volto" and "Amor hai vinto".
2. Homage to Handel!
Here the most beautiful pieces of the baroque master of sound, an outstanding cembalist and opera composer, make themselves heard. Amongst others works from his famous operas like Julius Caesar, Orlando Furioso, Alcina, from his oratories Semele, Athalia, Judas Maccabeus, but also his cembalo and concert music.
3. Masters of Scandinavian baroque
They lived or were born in Scandinavia, and they wrote peerlessly beautiful music that is almost unknown in other countries. Moderations introduce to and explain these works. The distinct sound of this baroque music will enchant you.
4. Side-splitting baroque
Baroque does not always have to be serious. Many composers have had their fun with the genre, and written funny, wacky and entertaining pieces – like the contest between recorder and cembalo, or a mourning cantata about a canary. Here is classical art for laughs!
