Compagnia di Punto


Founded in 2010, the Compagnia di Punto is a period performance ensemble that performs music from the Baroque to the early Romantic period in fluid transitions from chamber ensemble to orchestral formation. The Compagnia, whose beginnings lie in the Cologne early music scene, aims to convey the relevance of early music in the present day.

Christian Binde


Born in Duisburg, Christian Binde was characterised as an artist by the contrast between new and early music, between freelance work in various orchestras and his own ensembles as well as his teaching activities. He has played with ensembles in Europe, Asia and America and taught at the universities in Linz and Trossingen.
