European Hanseatic Ensemble
The ensemble is composed of vocal soloists and instrumentalists who have excelled in the masterclasses of the previous year. They will play on instruments of the time around 1600: cornets, baroque trombones, violins in old scale, viole da gamba, dulcian, lute instruments and organ. In this instrumentation, the young musicians from many European countries perform works by composers who were active in the Hanseatic cities during the Hanseatic period (before 1669) and transport the audience into a world of sound that shaped the musical life of the old Hanseatic cities roughly 400 years ago.
