A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin

The Baroque Variations series and Chamber Music Society bring the debut of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin to Walt Disney Concert Hall as this most distinguished group begins their two-week tour of the United States.

Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin was founded in 1982 in East Berlin and is recognized as one of the world’s leading Baroque ensembles.  Their music, played on period instruments, is recognized for its authentic presentation, and the touring program samples each of the instrumental styles of the German late Baroque.

Soloists include Georg Kallweit (violin and concertmaster), Anna Fusek (recorder), Christoph Huntgeburth (flute), and Raphael Alpermann (harpsichord).
