HAMBURGER RATSMUSIK

HAMBURGER RATSMUSIK - Germany

HAMBURGER RATSMUSIK
Today, the Hamburger Ratsmusik can look back on half a millennium of musical history in Hamburg, as it was in 1522 that the city first employed town players. From then on, the city afforded an elite ensemble of eight musicians based on the principle “to honor God and Hamburg for pleasure, amusement and utility”.

Revived by Simone Eckert in 1991, the ensemble has continued this tradition for more than 30 years, dedicating itself with unwaning enthusiasm to historically informed performance on original instruments. The sound of these rare instruments, some of which are more than 300 years old, continues to intrigue and inspire both the “Ratsmusicians” and their audiences.
