Arcangelo is one of the world’s leading ensembles bringing together exceptional musicians who excel on both historical and modern instruments, under the direction of founder and artistic director & conductor Jonathan Cohen.
Its players believe that the collaboration required in chamber music, whether working in duos or as a chamber orchestra, is the highest expression of what it means to make music. Setting it apart from other ensembles, all performers are committed to this chamber ideal and as such Arcangelo attracts an outstanding calibre of performers who already have flourishing solo and chamber music careers. These are performers of dazzling technical ability, but they also have a passion for faithful interpretation that goes far beyond historical understanding.
A regular collaborator and partner with this ensemble, cellist Nicolas Altstaedt joins them once again in the coming seasons for performances throughout Europe of C P E Bach’s cello concerti, alongside works by Mendelssohn and Haydn.
