Ensemble Marsyas – From the Dresden Court

Dresden was the epicentre of musical life in the 18th century. Under the patronage of Frederick Augustus the city became the musical hub of Europe attracting the greatest composers and performers of the day. Ensemble Marsyas will perform a selection of the extraordinarily virtuosic wind music sourced from the private cabinet of the Crown Princess, featuring works by Handel, Fasch, Zelenka and Weiss.

Ensemble Marsyas: Josep Domènech Lafont – oboe; Molly Marsh – oboe; Peter Whelan – bassoon; Thomas Dunford – theorbo; Philippe Grisvard – harpsichord; Christine Sticher – violone.

"…it's the group's nuance that's transfixing…The players are audibly intelligent, at once humorous and illuminating…" – BBC Music Magazine
