Musici d'Naumburg (Baroque Orchestra)

Founded: 2003 - Naumburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany

The Baroque orchestra Musici d'Numburg combines predominantly young, dedicated musicians who have dedicated themselves to the interpretation of Baroque repertoire on original instruments or their replicas and a vibrant historically informed performance practice.

The Baroque Orchestra was founded in 2003 on the initiative of former Wenzel organist Irene Greulich and the Naumburg musician Claudia Wahlbuhl and developed under its concertmaster Dorothea Vogel from the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and the conductor Domkantor KMD Jan-Martin Drafehn to a high quality sound body extending through adequate stylistics combined with great enthusiasm characterizes and produces a richly nuanced and color tone of the 17th and 18th centuries.

After the performances of Messiah by George Frideric Handel in 2009, Te Deum by Marc Antonine Charpentier and multiple performance of Weihnachts-Oratorium (BWV 248) by J.S. Bach in recent years, the instrumental ensemble was a companion of the highly acclaimed Bach Cantata Series "Prominenz im Gespräch" as part of the national exhibition "Der Naumburger Meister" in 2011. In 2012, the orchestra was heard in a gala concert as part of the "Tage der Mitteldeutschen Barockmusik" and also in the traditional church festival concert at Naumburger Dom.
