Under the name La Banda gathered a group of renowned musicians, who had already played frequently together in the past in different circumstances. The repertoire of the orchestra covers Passions, Oratorios and numerous Cantatas of J.S. Bach, as well as the big choral works of Monteverdi, Händel, Haydn and Mozart.
In 1995 the orchestra followed an invitation to the "culture capital at that time of Europe" Luxembourg and their performance of Die Schöpfung by J. Haydn in concert at the festival there, was received with big applause. A much-appreciated concert of Karmelitenvesper by G.F. Händel in November 1996 with the Fürther Kirchenmusiktagen was broadcast by the Bavarian Radio, as well as the performance of G.F. Händel's oratorio Israel in Egypt in November 2001 at St. Sebastian in Munich.
La Banda has participated in over 100 concerts and broadcast recordings all over Germany and abroad. The conspicuous characteristic of La Banda is its alive and expression-strong music-making, the intensive contact of the musicians among themselves and the joy in the playing, which lets the spark transformed to the public.
Early, thus historical instruments and a study of the HIP, as well as the playing techniques of the 18th Century represent thereby a natural basis. But Historical Performance Practice should not be a self-purpose. Of the musical considerations the idea is the centre to make again the spirited and heart-felt music of earlier periods perceptible and experiencable.
