No less than fifty years before historical performance practice first rose to prominence, the Bogenhauser Künstlerkapelle (1899–1939) was already playing historical instruments – propelled not by academic interest, but by curiosity and the pure joy of music-making. Their unusual repertoire encompassed Bavarian folk music and ballads along with works from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods. This rediscovery of an early music avant-garde is brought to life here by the ensemble arcimboldo in the original instrumentation.
