About the Event
Telemann's 'Brockes‐Passion' continues to captivate listeners and evoke deep emotions. The passion begins with a serene Sinfonia that has the power to send shivers down your spine. From there, the intensity builds as the earth trembles, Mary cries, and the apostles are left bewildered. The genius of lyricist Brockes is evident in how he immerses the audience in the middle of the Passion story. Telemann elevates the experience with his poignant music.
The Apollo Ensemble is a versatile group that can transform into various formations, whether it be a baroque orchestra, a duo, trio, or septet. However, their shared passion remains constant. These musicians are enamored by the ability of centuries‐old music to be revitalized and sound fresh time and time again. Sharing this fascination with audiences is a beautiful and rewarding experience. Welcome to the Apollo Ensemble!
