About the Event

Henry Purcell is considered the most famous English composer of the baroque era. His style combines memorable melodies with grooving rhythms – one might say his music enjoyed something akin to pop status in 17th‐century London. More than 300 years later, in 1962, the Beatles released their first single, launching modern pop culture in the 20th century. The saxophone, which Adolphe Sax had patented in Paris in 1846, seems predestined for this music, taking a leading role in jazz and pop music alike, but also unfolding wondrous effects in early music. The saxophone player Asya Fateyeva, one of the outstanding representatives of this instrument, and the lautten compagney BERLIN, an ensemble playing on historical instruments, build an impressive bridge between the centuries.

Chamber Music: Lautten Compagney

The Lautten Compagney Berlin is one of the most renowned German Baroque ensembles. Performing on period instruments in different chamber orchestral formations that stretch through to the Baroque opera orchestra, their repertoire encompasses a wide spectrum, ranging from 17th cent. English dancing music, sacred music and operas by Handel to crossover projects serving as a bridge to modern dance (with Heike Henning & Co. dance company, Sasha Waltz & Guests, etc.) and 20th century music. With its concerts and operatic guest performances, the Lautten Compagney makes appearances throughout Germany and on international stages as well.

Wolfgang Katschner is not only Lautten Compagneys conductor and artistic director, but also a virtuoso lutenist and researcher of historic scores. In October 2010 the Lautten Compagney was awarded with the Echo Klassik Award (Early Music Ensemble of the Year) for its most recent CD “Timeless” – music by Tarquinio Merula and Philip Glass.
