About La Cappella Piccola
A “small band” made up of musicians from the “big” Staatskapelle: their passion for baroque and early classical music has brought them together. They have already worked together on several concert programmes, which they have successfully presented as for example works by the highly original Bach contemporary, Jan Dismas Zelenka, compositions by “Old Master” Bach and his sons, as well as by the Graun brothers. The musicians – who otherwise provide for the success of opera and ballet performances in the orchestra pit of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden or are to be experienced on the podium of the Philharmonie and Konzerthaus – have consciously chosen their traditional instruments in their interpretations, but cultivate the based on the so-called “historically informed music practice”. The solo cast of the individual parts not only ensures a transparent sound, but also an extraordinary musical flexibility.
