Telemann - Brockes-Passion
"May my pen moisten itself with tears, that it may provoke such wetness to others." Telemann wrote these words in the foreword to his impressive 'Brockes-Passion'. Whether that happened to the first listeners in 1716, we do not know. However, Telemann's 'Brockes-Passion' still makes a deep impression on the listeners. Just the serene Sinfonia with which this passion begins will undoubtedly give you goose bumps. But then, the earth trembles and shakes, Mary cries, the apostles don't know what to do... The lyricist Brockes places you in the middle of the agony. Telemann adds an extra dimension with his poignant music.
Thomas Oltheten about what he thinks is characteristic of the ensemble:
"The intensity of the interplay. We play without a conductor, which makes you very dependent on each other at a concert. This creates an enormous artistic dynamic. It's also very exciting. Especially when you're playing with soloists, like Telemann's Brockes-Passion."
(Read the interview with Thomas Oltheten.)
The Apollo Ensemble is an international company whose musicians come from all over the world. Artistic leader is the originally Ukrainian violinist David Rabinovich, who has more than earned his international spurs and has been a prominent member of Ton Koopmans Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra for seventeen years. The Apollo Ensemble is gripped by the miracle that ancient music can sound like new again and again. What is more beautiful and rewarding than sharing this fascination with the public? Come listen to the Apollo Ensemble!
