Cappella Amsterdam

Idioma disponible: inglés
Cappella Amsterdam is a Dutch choir that has specialized in both early and contemporary music, experimenting with vocal techniques appropriate to each of these repertories. The group is noted for its distinctive vocal blend, which has attracted a variety of contemporary composers. The choir is one of the more durable ensembles on the Dutch scene, having been founded in 1970. Its first director was Jan Boeke; its music director as of the mid-2020s is Daniel Reuss, who was appointed in 1990 and transformed the choir into a professional ensemble. The 25 members of Cappella Amsterdam emphasize Dutch repertory from both the Renaissance and modern eras; music by such composers as Sweelinck, Lassus, Ton de Leeuw, Robert Heppener, and Klaas de Vries is frequently performed. The choir maintains a busy schedule of concerts around the Netherlands and beyond and has appeared at the Utrecht Early Music Festival, the Holland Festival, and the Rheingau Musik Festival. Cappella Amsterdam collaborates often with both instrumental and operatic ensembles. The choir made its recording debut on the Hyperion label in 1997 with a recording of Ivan Moody's Passion and Resurrection and has since released albums on Challenge Classics, Harmonia Mundi, and Glossa (a pair of Bach recordings with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century). The group has participated in productions of Rameau's Les Indes galantes with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century under Frans Brüggen and of Tan Dun's opera Marco Polo. The choir's instrumental collaborators have included early music groups, traditional orchestral ensembles, and modern groups: the Combattimento Consort Amsterdam, the Akademie für alte Musik Berlin, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Ensemble Intercontemporain; it has also joined with the SWR Vocal Ensemble and the RIAS Kammerchor from Germany. Noted for its homogenous vocal blend, Cappella Amsterdam has recorded for prestigious labels that emphasize strong engineering. Cappella Amsterdam recorded Arvo Pärt's Kanon Pokajanen for Harmonia Mundi in 2016 and returned to Glossa the following year, again teamed with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century for a historically informed reading of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis in D major, Op. 123, and in 2019, it departed again from the early music - contemporary duality with a recording of Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem. The group remained active through the COVID-19 pandemic, releasing the album Roland de Lassus: Inferno on Harmonia Mundi in 2020 and then moving to Channel Classics for the Renaissance-contemporary program In Umbra Mortis in 2021, David Lang: the writings (based on Hebrew biblical texts) in 2022, and a recording of Alfred Schnittke's Psalms of Repentance in 2023. By that time, the group's recording catalog comprised more than 20 choice releases.
