Michael Hell am Cembalo Michael Hell brilliantly demonstrates his mastery of the recorder in Telemann’s lively runs and of the harpsichord in Bach’s difficult 5th Brandenburg Concerto.


Bach meets Telemann

When the spirited Telemann was brought together with his boyhood friend Bach in a concert at Minoritensaal in early 2023, the audience’s enthusiasm knew no bounds. In May 2024 this meeting of the two composers is directed by Michael Hell: first, with the aplomb of the master flautist, he brings us the sparkling runs and lively dances of Telemann’s Suite in A Minor. Then he plays the incredibly difficult harpsichord solo in the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5. Only Hell can shine so bright!

Recreation - Das Orchester

After its formation in 2002, the collective played unique halls such as the Alte Oper Frankfurt and worked with outstanding conductors.
