Dresdner kapellsolisten

  • Orchestra


The name Dresdner Kapellsolisten is a synonym for energetic and inspiring performances.
In 1994 their passion for the historically informed performance practice of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic music repertoire united the members of the ensemble. Under the musical direction of their “Primus inter Pares” Helmut Branny ? one of the founding members
? the Dresdner Kapellsolisten translate the language and stylistic elements of music into fascinating, vivid interpretations. Great sound and the search for musical authenticity thereby go hand in hand.

One of the major aims of the Dresdner Kapellsolisten is the continuous, historically and stylistically comprehensive care for the enormous heritage of chamber music. Another matter particularly near to the ensemble’s heart is the re-discovery of almost forgotten music.

Their thoroughly-researched interpretations cast the spotlight of today on composers like Johann Gottlieb Naumann, Anton Teyber, Johann Baptist Neruda, Antonio Rosetti und Friedrich Wilhelm Herschel.

Within this field particular attention is given to the revival of works by composers connected with the city or region of Dresden like Franz Seydelmann, Johann Georg Pisendel, Johann Gottlieb Graun and Antonio Lotti.

Multi-faceted engagements take the Dresdner Kapellsolisten to the important concert halls of Germany and to many renowned festivals like Rheingau Music Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Usedom Festival, Würzburger Mozartfest, Festival Mitte-Europa and Bad Kissinger Sommer. Travelling abroad the ensemble has also given concerts in Italy, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria and Japan. It has enjoyed working with celebrated soloists like Isabelle van Keulen, Viktoria Mullova, Jan Vogler, François Leleux, Maurice André, Axel Köhler, Danjulo Ishizaka, Matthias Görne, Alison Balsom, Peter Schreier und
Peter Rösl as well as highly talented young musicians like Nils Mönkemeyer, , Martin Stadtfeld, Gabór Boldóczki and Sergej Nakariakov. Over many years a strong collaboration has developed between the Dresdner Kapellsolisten under Helmut Branny and the famous Dresdner Kreuzchor.
The Dresdner Kapellsolisten received the German Music Award “Echo Klassik 2010”.
