Virtuosi Saxoniae


The Virtuosi Saxoniae is really a chamber orchestra dedicated generally to 18th century Baroque works, especially those from that era using a performance history on the Dresden Courtroom. Hence the ensemble’s repertory is normally abundant with music by Jan Dismas Zelenka, Johann Friedrich Fasch, and Johann Adolf Hasse. But it addittionally includes huge chunks from the outputs of J.S. Bach, Vivaldi, and Telemann, in addition to functions by many less popular numbers, like Johann David Heinichen, Johann Melchior Molter, and Johann Gottlieb Graun. Furthermore, the ensemble’s repertory stretches into the traditional era to take functions by Haydn, Mozart, along with other composers. The Virtuosi Saxoniae contain about 23 players, most of whom are people from the Dresden Staatskapelle. Usually the amount of players in confirmed concert agreements from 20 roughly to a few due to the needs of repertory. The VS offers provided regular concerts in the Dresden Lukaskirche, Frauenkirche, along with other Dresden places and also have toured throughout Germany and overseas. The ensemble offers made an appearance on over 100 recordings for such brands as Berlin Classics, Delta, and Carus. The Virtuosi Saxoniae was founded in 1985 by Ludwig Güttler, who acts because the ensemble’s music movie director. He also frequently appears in collaboration with the ensemble as trumpet or corno da caccia soloist. Güttler find the name Virtuosi Saxoniae not merely to reflect the bond towards the repertory from the (Saxon) Dresden Courtroom, but to point the higher level of musicianship both in the courtroom and in his modern-day ensemble. The VS offered its inaugural concert in the 1986 Dresden Music Event. The orchestra quickly drew see and among its 1st recordings was a 1988 Eterna disk entitled Kursächsische Kirchenmusik — Cantatas for tenor & trumpet, with famous tenor Peter Schreier and Güttler on trumpet. A string of effective recordings followed, like the 1993 Berlin Classics Compact disc Konzerte für Trompete und Corno da Caccia, which presented functions by Handel, Hertel, Rathgeber, among others. Through the entire 1990s and in to the fresh hundred years the VS drew wide acclaim both because of its concert shows and substantially bulging discography. Having previously performed in the Frauenkirche catacombs, the VS started regularly showing up in concert on the restored Frauenkirche from 2005, the entire year the recovery was completed. One of the ensemble’s even more acclaimed recordings may be the 2011 Berlin Classics Compact disc Triumph des Corno da Caccia, which features the VS with several soloists in functions by J.S. Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, among others.
