Ensembles of note, in their own words. (Click on the country to read more.)

Germany: La Stagione Frankfurt (Michael Schneider, dir.).

The orchestra La Stagione Frankfurt has for many years been counted among the most successful ensembles in the field of authentic music performance.

It is the discovery and performance of lesser known musical gems by composers such as F.I. Beck, A. Stradella, A. Scarlatti, I. Holzbauer and the sons of Bach coupled with the stimulating and authentic interpretation of the standard repertoire which characterises the artistic intention of La Stagione.

Belgium: Collegium Vocale Gent (Philippe Herreweghe, dir.).

…was founded in 1970 on the initiative of Philippe Herreweghe. It was one of the first ensembles to use the then-new ideas about baroque practice in vocal music performances.
