Since the 2012/2013 season Reinhard Goebel has conducted the Staatskapelle’s »Palm Sunday Concerts«, exploring a repertoire that embodies the orchestra’s unique history. Composers such as Zelenka, Fasch, Telemann or Johann Sebastian Bach wrote countless works for the former Court Kapelle, and in so doing paid their respects to an ensemble whose fame has always stretched far outside Saxony’s borders.
Now, Reinhard Goebel, founder and artistic director of Musica Antiqua Köln for over 30 years, and a hugely influential pioneer in the field of period performance, is returning these pieces to the Staatskapelle’s concert repertoire. For his work with early music ensembles as well as large symphony orchestras, Reinhard Goebel has received numerous
prizes and accolades.
