The Ensemble

POLYHARMONIQUE  is a collective of vocal soloists with a focus on vocal music of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. 

Alongside well-known repertoire by Baroque masters, the ensemble devotes itself to the rediscovery of neglected ‘ancient music’. Several CDs of little-known compositions have already been issued, including “Musicalische Seelenlust” featuring works by Tobias Michael, the “Cavalli Requiem” (Raumklang Records) and “Chor-Music auff Madrigalmanier” with works by Andreas Hammerschmidt (Querstand).
The current recording of Johann Georg Künstel’s St Mark’s Passion has been published by christophorus records, which was sponsored by the Aventis Foundation. 

The ensemble received invitations to festivals including the Musica Divina in Belgium, the Oude Muziek Utrecht, the Heinrich-Schütz-Musikfest, the Thüringer Bachwochen, the Muziekcentrum De Bijloke in Gent, Tage Alter Musik in Regensburg and Herne and the Händel-Festspielen in Halle.

Polyharmonique cultivates a close cooperation with a number of orchestras specialised in historically informed performance practice such as the Baroque orchestra {oh!} Orkiestra Historyczna from Katowice, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, La Folia Barockorchester and Concerto Melante (Berlin Philharmonic).
Polyharmonique’s varied concert activities are documented by numerous broadcast recordings.
