DAS LAUITZER BAROCKENSEMBLE

 

founded in 2017 in the European city of Görlitz-Zgorzelec

The Lusatian Baroque Ensemble was founded in Görlitz-Zgorzelec in 2017 with musicians from both sides of the Neisse, young artists who share a love for early music and who like to make music together. You deal with the musical history of the region and above all want to bring unknown or forgotten works of the Polish and German Renaissance and Baroque to life. Her first appearance was dedicated to Georg Philipp Telemann, one of the most important composers of the Central German Baroque, who combined many European influences in his music and was particularly fond of Polish folk music, which he performed at the court of the Prince of Promnitz in Pless and Sorau has inspired numerous compositions.  For example, the ensemble performed as part of the Telemann anniversary in Sorau in June 2017 and in the baroque castles of Rammenau and Hainewalde in Upper Lusatia.

In 2018, a small trio formation from the ensemble performed in the former Protestant church in Ruszow with Polish and German baroque music compositions. The trio has also played several chamber concerts at the association's headquarters in Görlitz and has also recorded the CD "Telemann-Crossing borders". With five musicians (2 violin, viola, basso continuo) the ensemble performed several times: in the baroque castle Rammenau, in the castle Hainewalde and fortified church Horka, in the manor house Gosswitz, in the foundation OP-ENHEIM in Breslau with baroque music by Jewish composers as part the event for the presentation of the book  "Jewish Life in Wroclaw"  by Dr. Herzig (December 2018) or during the "Entry of the Oranges" in the Dresden Zwinger and the opening of the Saxon Castle Land in 2019 (Palais im Großer Garten, Dresden).

The concerts of the ensemble in the Bürgersaal Zittau and in the crypt of the Peterskirche in Görlitz were also very successful. In 2019 the ensemble performed as part of the KUS festival (INTERREG Poland-Saxony project). The premiere in modern times of Antonio Lotti's opera "Giove in Argo" was a great success as part of the celebrations for the 300 years since the Planet Festival in September 2019 in the Kurtheater in Bad Salzbrunn and in the Palais in Großer Garten in Dresden. The concert was repeated in 2020 in the Gerhart-Hauptmann-Theater in Görlitz and the State and University Library in Dresden.  

The baroque ensemble met in September 2021 in the OP ENHEIM Foundation to realize the first sound recording of Antonio Bioni's opera "Issipile". The opera will appear as a film production on the website of the Opera at the Castle in Stettin at the end of October, and is a production of the theater with funding from the Polish Ministry of Culture, based on an idea of the Ars-Augusta eV association
