Info for Praetorius dances



Exzellentes Album zum 450. Geburtstag von Michael Praetorius: In seiner Werksammlung »Terpsichore«, benannt nach der Muse des Tanzes in der griechischen Mythologie, sammelte der deutsche Komponist Michael Praetorius (1571–1621) alle gängigen Tanz-Hits seiner Zeit und arrangierte sie für Instrumentalensemble. Die Sammlung von 312 Tänzen, die 1612 in Wolfenbüttel herausgegeben wurde, ist erstaunlicherweise nahezu komplett in Vergessenheit geraten. Nun präsentiert die Capella de la Torre unter der Leitung von Katharina Bäuml eine Auswahl der besten Werke aus »Terpsichore« – Musik, die auch heute noch die Füße zum Wippen bringt.

Zum 450. Jubiläum von Michael Praetorius hat das Ensemble aus der »Terpsichore« Branslen, Couranten, Ballette, Pavanen und Galliarden – so hießen die Tänze der damaligen Zeit – ausgewählt und bringen sie durch die Kombination von historischen Blasinstrumenten mit Laute und Orgel auf ganz neue Weise zu Gehör. Musik und die passenden Bewegungen bedingen und beeinflussen sich im Programm gegenseitig; Improvisationen wechseln sich mit aufgeschriebenen Sätzen ab. Neben Werken von Praetorius sind auf dem Album auch fröhlich-tänzerische Stücke von anderen Komponisten der damaligen Epoche zu hören, wie zum Beispiel von Claude Le Jeune, Thoinot Arbeau, Adrien le Roy und Clement Jannequin.

Mit »Praetorius Dances« transportieren Katharina Bäuml und ihr Ensemble »tänzerische« Gefühle und Stimmungen über alle Zeiten hinweg bis in die Gegenwart – in einer farbenreichen und überaus zeitgemäßen Aufführung.

Capella de la Torre
Katharina Bäuml, Leitung


Capella de la Torre
is a group of musicians who have made a name for themselves as specialists in historical performance practice. The ensemble's aim is to give listeners an immediate experience of the rich and hitherto neglected repertoire of mediaeval and renaissance music by performing it to a professional standard.

The name "de la Torre" has a double meaning. In the first place, it pays homage to the Spanish composer Francisco de la Torre, who wrote his "Danza Alta" at the beginning of the 16th century. This is probably the most famous piece for what was then known as "capella alta", an ensemble of wind instruments such as shawms, dulcians, sackbuts and cornetti. Capella de la Torre has specialized in music written for the "capella alta". Secondly, the name may be taken in a literal sense: "de la Torre" means "from the tower" and groups of wind players (Spanish: ministriles) often played on towers or balconies at festivals and other official occasions. "Torres de los Ministriles" are still to be found in many Spanish towns today.

Capella de la Torre does not confine itself to Spanish music, however, but also plays music written throughout the rest of Europe for the "hauts instruments" or "loud instruments". In general, it tries to breathe life into the old traditions of "ministriles", "piffari" and "Stadtpfeiffer".

In the music world of today there are very few ensembles centred around historical double-reed instruments. This is particularly so in Germany.

Katharina Bäuml
born in Munich, Germany, studied modern oboe in the Conservartories of Hannover with Klaus Becker, Hamburg with Rainer Herweg and Mannheim with Winfried Liebermann graduating with 1st Class Honours. She has performed as oboe soloist in the “Gustav Mahler Orchestra” and has tought oboe at the School of Music of Hamburg.

In Hamburg she also elaborated her musical skills by studying historical woodwind instruments with Renate Hildebrand at the Hamburg Conservatory, finished her studies with the Diploma with 1st Class Honours. For further widening her expertise of historical oboes and shawms she then studied with Katharina Arfken at the “Schola Cantorum”, Basel and has participated in master classes with Ku Ebbinge, Alfredo Bernardini, Paul Dombrecht and Bruce Haynes. Katharina has worked with Claudio Abbado, Pierre Boulez, Gottfried von der Goltz, Andrea Marcon, Carles Magraner, Marc Minkowski, Michael Schoenheit y Ludger Remy and has performed with Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Les Musiciens du Louvre, Barockorchester L´Arco, L´Arpa Festante, Musica Fiata, Dresdner Instrumentalconcert, Capella de Ministrers, Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla and Ministriles de Marsias.

In 2005 Katharina has founded the ensemble “Capella de la Torre”, which is dedicated to the music of the 15th and 16th centuries especially for double reed instruments.

Katharina has appeared in various recordings of CDs and radio broadcastings, e.g. for Radio France, MDR, NDR and WDR. She has given master classes of medieval and renaissance music at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and is currently living in Braunschweig, Germany, where she also teaches oboe and shawm.

With the accordeon-player Margit Kern Katharina Bäuml founded 2011 the Duo Mixtura, where the two musicians combine music o the Renaissance with contemprary music written especially for the duo. www.ensemble-mixtura.de

Katharina Bäuml is giving in masterclasses at the conservatorys of Geneva and Hannover and she teaches in Berlin.
