The founding of this orchestra signifies both continuity and adventure to us at the Dresden Music Festival. An orchestra which explores Dresden’s rich musical history using original instruments of the period in question inspires us as a festival while also profiting itself from the festival’s atmosphere and the orchestral tradition of Saxony. It is an ambitious project which we were only able to grow so quickly thanks to the loyal support of the Dresden Music Festival’s audience. Concerts at the Festival, guest performances and CD productions: the activities of our Festival Orchestra are diverse and plenty. Your interest and your curiosity about the new historical sound from Dresden is our motivation.

Yours, Jan Vogler, Intendant of the Dresden Music Festival
