      Transylvania Baroque Ensemble

The Baroque Ensemble “Transylvania”, founded 1995, is mainly dedicated
to indigenous baroque music and uses copies of historical instruments. The
ensemble also plays contemporary Transylvanian music, and has
interpreted several first performances of works by composers like Hans
Peter Türk, Adrian Borza, Dan Voiculescu, Adrian Pop and Cornel Ţăranu.
The Transylvania Baroque Ensemble’s activity is documented by its three
CDs, one DVD as well as repeated radio and TV appearances and a busy
schedule of concerts and tours (over 450 public performances). Apart from
performances at national music festivals, the ensemble has performed at
various events hosted by the Romanian Cultural Presidency and diplomatic
missions, and conducted numerous tours abroad, to countries as Germany,
The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Hungary, Portugal
and Moldova. It gave concerts on premises like the Concertgebouw
Amsterdam and the Gasteig in Munich, and was a guest of the Landshuter
Hofmusiktage festival of old music, Germany.

            The concert is part of Project BAROCCOCO,
                            cofinanced by
          Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs of Romania
            through Programme PROMOCULT-2008
