Recognised as one of the leading chamber orchestras in the classical music scene, KAMMERORCHESTER BASEL is invited to the most important worldwide concert houses and festivals. They present their broad repertoire from historically informed baroque to contemporary music in about 80 performances per year. Various recordings on classical labels like Sony, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi and Warner Classics, many awarded with prestigious prizes, play as witness to their joy of playing together.
The fruitful collaboration with their principal guest conductor, Giovanni Antonini, has led to the historically informed interpretation of Beethoven cycle, awarded with the “Ensemble of the year” by ECHO Klassik in 2008. The Kammerorchester Basel together with Il Giardino Armonico will record all of Haydn’s 107 symphonies up until the year 2032. In September 2019 the orchestra was awarded a Swiss music prize.
