EXPLORING - CREATING - SHARING
“The way historical research and musical excellence come together here is both meritorious and thrilling at the same time.”
Founded in 2008 by violinist Johannes Pramsohler and a group of like-minded musicians, Ensemble Diderot has become an absolute reference in classical music. Their distinctive sound, the fresh approach to baroque music on original instruments inviting audiences to go on thought-provoking journeys, the creative use of historically informed performance, thorough research, and highly inventive programming have earned them a large international fan base, not only in the Early Music scene. The award-winning discography consisting mainly of world premiere recordings bears testimony to the adventurous spirit of the ensemble's members. Read more...
Johannes Pramsohler and his colleagues rummaged through Bach’s luggage and that of his contemporaries and found concertos that were probably conceived especially to be taken on journeys. Grouped around the first version of the Fifth Brandenburg Concerto, these remarkable and brilliant pieces for up to five soloists are played with Ensemble Diderot’s trademark warmth and vitality.
We are looking forward to performing in many prestigious venues this season. We will give our debut concerts at Brucknerhaus Linz, at the Luxemburg Philharmonie, Seoul Arts Center, Schlossfestspiele Brühl and at Mozartfest Würzburg. On 25 December we are back at the Cologne Philharmonie for an exciting Christmas concert and we will take our Musical Offering to Spain for the first time in March. Ware happy to continue our residency at the Euregio Cultural Centre "Gustav Mahler" in Toblach and at the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles and will be back at some of our favourite venues such as Opéra de Lille and Festival du Périgord Noir. June 2023 will see us take up residency at the Cork Chamber Music Festival. A packed season indeed!
