Handel's Company (Choir & Early Music Orchestra)

Orchestra Founded: 1999- Germany
Choir Founded: 2011

Handelís Company was founded in 1999 by Rainer Johannes Homburg and Harry Hoffmann. In 2011 the orchestra was joined by a choir: Handelís Company Choir. The ensembles aim to present exemplary performances of early music works, especially sacred choral and orchestral music. This frequently includes newly-rediscovered works, principally from the 18th century. One natural precondition of their approach is to use instruments from the period in question, and to intensively research the appropriate performance conventions. Their creative work is characterized by successful and outstanding CD recordings: their Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer recording received an ECHO-Klassik award in 2008. Handelís Company Choir and its partner orchestra Handelís Company were reorganized following their artistic director Rainer Johannes Homburgís move to Stuttgart and have been based in there since 2011. In its current line-up, the choir comprises voice teachers and advanced singers from the male voice choir of the Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben boysí choir, augmented by professional choral singers.
