Neue Hofkapelle Graz
The Grazer Hofkapelle left Graz in 1619 in order to move to Vienna together with the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II. After 400 years in exile the now called Neue Hofkapelle Graz has finally returned to the charming city.
The musicians are specialised on historically informed performance practice and have been playing together for several years. Under the direction of the violinist Lucia Froihofer and Michael Hell (harpsichord and recorder) the ensemble is deeply rooted in Early Music. Their vivid performances combine ancient knowledge with sparkling life.
