LA FOLIA - in the Baroque era this term stood for boldness, wild passion, boisterousness, welcome distraction and altogether meant an artistic attitude of liberty and excessive creativitiy. Ever since its founding in 2007 La Folia Barockorchester has, on period instruments, stimulated the international music scene with these same attributes and is known for causing a furore – in the best possible way.
Be it as a chamber music ensemble or with performances in full Baroque sumptuousness, be it instrumental music or collaborations with vocal soloists – this young ensemble, with its founder and concert master Robin Peter Müller, stands for lively and rousing interpretation of music from the 17th and 18th centuries. As historically informed musicians, they are always looking for ways to transport emotions and meanings of past centuries to be experienced by modern audiences. Vividness and enjoyment of playing, but also respect for the music and awareness of its intensive effect – these views of the Baroque era build the foundation of La Folia Barockorchester’s interpretations.
A perfect location (Dresdener Palais im Großen Garten), an experienced recording team with mastermind Günter Pauler, state-of-the-art recording equipment - and a courageous, professional baroque music ensemble. Another great recording on Stockfisch.
