Ensemble Polyharmonique - Germany

Ensemble Polyharmonique
The Berlin-based Ensemble Polyharmonique, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2024, is one of the most active vocal ensembles in Germany, consistently presenting valuable rediscoveries of 17th and 18th century vocal music at a high artistic level. The basic cast consists of 6 vocal soloists a cappella or accompanied by the basso continuo and can vary depending on the programme (4-16 singers).

For the repertoire with instrumental accompaniment, such as the works by J.S. Bach, Dieterich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu nostri, Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers or the Messiah by G.F. Händel, renowned baroque orchestras could be won as partners, among them the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, das Wrocław Baroque Orchestra, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, Holland Baroque, Arte dei Suonatori, {oh!} Orkiestra from Katowice and the La Folia Barockorchester. 

There are already over a dozen internationally acclaimed CD recordings. Amongst others with collections of sacred vocal music by Johann David Heinichen, Wolfgang Carl Briegel, Andreas Hammerschmidt, Tobias Michael and Heinrich Schütz. 
The recording of the "Geistliche Chor-Music 1648" by Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) was awarded a Diapason d'Or in 2021.

Four thousand singers performing Messiah were scarcely enough in London in 1883, when national feeling was at its peak. 
But at its premiere in Dublin in 1742, Handel wanted just a small chorus and an ensemble of strings – to create a marvellous sound he needed not so much as an oboe. 
But trumpets for the Hallelujah Chorus – that went without saying! We know of all this from Donald Burrows, who has made a close study of the performance history.
In London, Italian opera had fallen from favour, and Handel returned to the music of Buxtehude and his teacher, Zachow, as a result. 
And so this performance, which rediscovers the exquisite pleasure of gentle lines and new-found fervour, promises to be full of charm.
