Johann Rosenmüller Ensemble (Instrumental Ensemble)

Born: 1995 - Leipzig, Saxony, Germany

The Johann Rosenmüller Ensemble was founded in 1995 in Leipzig by the cornettist Arno Paduch.

Since then, the Ensemble has given several very well-received concerts in Germany, including performances at the Handel Festival in Halle/ Saale, The Heinrich Schütz Festivals in Bad Köstritz and Weißenfels, the Middle German Radio Summer of Music, the Weserbergland Music Festival, the Bachfest Leipzig and in Poland, Austria and in Switzerland.

The ensemble is named after the most important German composer of the generation between Heinrich Schütz and J.S. Bach, Johann Rosenmüller, whose contemporaries regarded him as the “alpha et omega musicorum”. The focus of the ensemble’s efforts is the performance of little-known music from the 17th and 18th centuries. Great importance is attched to historically accurate performances wich are based on a careful study of the historical sources and are played on copies of period instruments.

The repertoire comprises solo sonatas and motets with basso continuo, polychoral music in the Venetian style, and the cantatas of J.S. Bach and Georg Philipp Telemann.

The Johann Rosenmüller Ensemble recorded some well-received CD's for Christophorus and Rondeau.
