Based in Berlin, highly respected Baroque ensemble Musica Sequenza was founded by conductor/bassoon virtuoso Burak Ozdemir in 2008, New York City. Musica Sequenza is comprised of young talents from The Juilliard School and University of Arts-Berlin, in the effort to bring unfamiliar jewels of the early music repertoire to new audiences in an innovative and virtuoso manner worldwide. Since the acclaimed debut performance of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s Concerto, Wq.166 in an arrangement transcribed by Burak Ozdemir at Lincoln Center New York, Musica Sequenza continued performing at World's most prestigious venues frequently.
The Ensemble size varies from duo to entire Baroque orchestra depending on repertoire being performed. Musica Sequenza has made its reputation as a Baroque Period ensemble in the highest quality, performing repertoire from Renaissance to early classical, but also takes a major role in the contemporary art scene, giving world-premiere performances to electro-acoustic, new music, dance and theater productions.
Musica Sequenza has also established itself as an outstanding group for the accompaniment of singers and soloists, such as Lionel Party, Kenneth Weiss and Daniel Bubeck. Among many unusual projects Musica Sequenza have taken on was a 2010 black box theater debut performance Burak Ozdemir's Fuga - The Electro-Baroque Opera to contemporary video art. The group has recorded for Sony Music/Deutsche Marmonia Mundi.
