Collegium Aureum


Active: 1962 - ; Freiburg, Germany
The Collegium Aureum considers itself a "resurrected court orchestra" that attempts to play music with the authentic performance practice and sound using the actual historical instruments of the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods of European music. The orchestra itself was founded in 1962 by the West German record company Harmonia Mundi, based in Freiburg. Its members are professional soloists and music conservatory teachers who are Read more dedicated to reviving, as much as possible, the actual concert experience of the various chosen eras by imitating the timbral colors through use of original string instruments and copies of old woodwind instruments, through sensitive musical interpretations, and through early performance practices such as playing without a conductor and instead being led by the violin concertmaster. The Collegium Aureum has toured internationally, performing in famous concert halls in England, France, Japan, Latin America, North Africa, the Netherlands, the countries of the former U.S.S.R., and the Middle East.
