Notes and Editorial Reviews

In 2016, almost three hundred years after the composition of Georg Caspar Schurmann’s Die getreue Alceste, Barockwerk Hamburg presented a semi-scenic performance of this opera in the atrium of the Hamburg State Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Culture. Ira Hochman founded the ensemble Barockwerk Hamburg in 2007 with the goal of rediscovering both vocal and instrumental chamber and stage music from the Baroque era and bring it back to life. The ensemble draws particularly often from the rich tradition of Hamburg, which not only attracted numerous great musicians during the 17th and 18th centuries, but also the public and patrons from all over Northern Europe. The permanent cast of Barockwerk Hamburg consists of 15 instrumentalists Read more and singers. However, the ensemble cooperates closely with other Baroque specialists and adapts the cast to the requirements of different programs. Its members include musicians with international experience as well as up and coming talents from Hamburg University of Music and Drama. Read less
