Chorus Musicus Köln (Chamber Choir)

Founded: 1985 - Köln (Cologne), Germany

Chorus Musicus Köln (= CMK) has been founded in 1985, by Christoph Spering, who serves as their music director and conductor.

Initially acting as chamber choir of the Protestant church community of Mülheim/Köln. CMK soon developed a nationwide reputation for its inspired historical interpretations, high virtuosity, beauty of sound and pure intonation.

The CMK’s repertoire reaches from baroque to 20th century music and focuses on rarely performed compositions. CMK has worked with guest conductors such as James Conlon , with whom they recorded Zemlinsky’s Works for Chorus, and Reinhard Goebel, with whom they recorded George Frideric Handel’s Marienkantaten.

Further projects were conducted by Gert Albrecht, Gianluigi Gelmetti and Philip Herreweghe. CMK has established its reputation with numerous concerts at international festivals and through awarded recordings, both under the baton of Christoph Spering and others.
