Info for J.S. Bach: Weihnachtsoratorium
Johann Sebastian Bachs Christmas Oratorio played as an urban chamber music: together with friends, wreath and new colours in basso continuo.
There are many ways of celebrating Christmas. Ensemble Resonanz comes up with a musical ceremony based on a chamber version of the most popular work of the Advent season, Bachs Christmas Oratorio. The score remains untouched, regarding the instrumentation there are new aspects: an electric guitar or a hammond organ as continuo instruments, just one trumpet doing the job of three and the whole ensemble singing the chorals.
Johanna Winkel, soprano
Truike van der Poel, mezzo-soprano
Benjamin Glaubitz, tenor
Dominik Köninger, bass
Johannes Öllinger, electric guitar
Michael Petermann, vintage keyboards
Marcus Schwind, trumpet
With its unique programme, enthusiasm and artistic quality, Ensemble Resonanz ranks as one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras. In innovative programmes, the musicians bridge the gap between tradition and the present time. Their lively interpretation of old masterpieces in dialogue with contemporary compositions often leads to unusual and surprising insights.
The string ensemble is organized in a democratic way and works without a permanent conductor. However, partner artists such as Tabea Zimmermann, conductor Riccardo Minasi or the cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras have worked with the ensemble intensely as artists in residence. For the season 16/17, the Argentinian conductor and composer Emilio Pomàrico will play this part. Concerts and various performances at leading concert halls and festivals bring the musicians around the world, evoking great enthusiasm by the audience.
At the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg the orchestra established itself as ensemble in residence and its concert series »Resonanzen« runs with great success in its 15th season. Starting in January 2017, its residency will be continued in the Elbphilharmonie. In the first season in the new house, the musicians invite the audience into the unknown, promising a new and surprising listening experience. Besides being the ensemble in residence of the Elbphilharmonie, the Ensemble Resonanz can be heard in jointly developed productions and will take part in various festivals and educational projects.
Home of Ensemble Resonanz remains the resonanzraum, which opened in 2014 in a bunker in the heart of St. Pauli. Here, the musicians established not only the monthly concert series URBAN STRING, where classical and new music are combined with club atmosphere in a very unique way, but also the anchor events, which invite the audience to new experiences around the Resonanzen concerts: from philosophical discussions, workshops and listening presentations to the experimental format »offbeat«.
For its exceptional architecture the resonanzraum received the international AIT-Award. As a chamber music hall it can be rented by other artists and promoters for their own concerts or for other events.
