The Vocalconsort Berlin was founded in 2003 and, in the same year, had its successful debut at the Innsbruck Festival Week in Claudio Monteverdi“s L'Orfeo under the direction of René Jacobs.
The Berlin based ensemble, whose ambitious members have also been able to gather experience in other internationally active chamber choirs is particularly specialized in early Baroque and Baroque. In addition, the Vocalconsort Berlin presents new interpretations of romantic and contemporary music.
The variability and flexibility of the Vocalconsort“s composition, which can range from quartet to multi-choir performance while at the same time allowing for the inclusion of solo performances, gives the Vocalconsort Berlin the ability to perform both in concert format as well as on the opera and theatrical stage.
The pure, inspiring and dynamic sound of the Vocalconsort Berlin finds its artistic counterpart in the cooperation with renowned conductors such as Marcus Creed, René Jacobs, Jos van Immerseel, Gary Cooper, Olof Boman and Ottavio Dantone as well as with excellent orchestras such as the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, the Accademia Bizantina, the Hamburg Baroque orchestra elbipolis and the Belgian baroque orchestra B'rock. Particularly with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, they enjoy strong ties of an extraordinary artistic and privileged co-operation.
Since 2006 the Vocalconsort Berlin works together with Sasha Waltz and Guests and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin under the roof of the RADIALSYSTEM V, the new location for performance art on the Spree.
