Accademia dell'Arcadia Turicum
The baroque ensemble Accademia dell'Arcadia Turicum was founded by Sabrina Frey and consists of outstanding musicians who specialize in historical performance practice. The aim is to bring lively interpretations on original instruments to life and to transport the modern listener for a short time into the world of the Baroque.
In addition to their activities in renowned baroque orchestras such as Il Giardino Armonico, I Barrochisti, Accademia Bizantina, Europa Galante and Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, the members are also in demand as international soloists and work with the best conductors of our time.
The ensemble's repertoire focuses on the music of the 17th and 18th centuries. The combination of musicians with the instrumentation size of a small orchestra enables the performance of outstanding chamber music. A varied program with different instrumentations makes the concerts a unique, electrifying experience. Depending on the program, the ensemble is supplemented with invited guest musicians.
The individual members of the ensemble have contracts with Deutsche Harmonia Mundi (Sony), Berlin Classics, TYXart, Stradivarius and Novalis. They have also played on recordings for Hänssler Classics, Harmonia Mundi France, Decca, Chandos, Virgin Classics and Deutsche Grammophon. Joint CDs of the ensemble have been released by Berlin Classics and TYXart.
The performances of Académie dell'Arcadia Turicum in Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Germany and France have been highly acclaimed by audiences and the press.
