Gewandhausorchester Leipzig (Orchestra) La Leipzig Gewandhausorchester è una orchestra tedesca con sede a Lipsia, in Germania. Prende il nome la sala da concerto in cui ha sede, la Gewandhaus.
L'orchestra ha l'orgolgio di poter essere definita la più antica organizzazione stabile musicale in Europa. Nel XIX secolo, Felix Mendelssohn fu il maestro di cappella.
Più tardi alcuni tra i dirttori musicali sono stati Arthur Nikisch, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Bruno Walter, Vaclav Neumann, e tra il 1970 il 1996 Kurt Masur. Nel 1998, Herbert Blomstedt ha assunto la carica fino al 2005 e il suo successore è Riccardo Chailly.
Herreweghe, Philippe (Direttore) Philippe Herreweghe is a Belgian conductor. He is principally known as a conductor of Johann Sebastian Bach, the German composer who wrote over one thousand works. He is regarded by leading Bach scholars today as a founding father of the baroque authentic practice, original instrument movement and one of record label Harmonia Mundi's most prolific recording artists, with over sixty albums to his name. His early training as a chorister and assistant choirmaster in a Jesuit school was complemented by piano studies at the Ghent Conservatory. At university Herreweghe studied psychiatry and formed a 12‐person choir devoted to the revolutionary performing practices of Gustav Leonhardt, Ton Koopman and the Kuijken brothers.
Collegium Vocale Gent (Coro) Collegium Vocale Gent was founded in 1970 on the initiative of Philippe Herreweghe.
It was one of the first ensembles to use the then‐new ideas about baroque practice in vocal music performances. Musicians such as Gustav Leonhardt, Ton Koopman and Nikolaus Harnoncourt immediately took an interest in the Flemish ensemble’s fresh, new approach, which led to intensive collaboration.
In the mid‐1980s the ensemble acquired international fame and was invited to all the major concert halls and music festivals of Europe, Israel, the United States, Russian, South America, Japan, Hong Kong and Australia.
