The Dresden Festival Orchestra was launched in the spirit of the legendary »Orchestra di Dresda«, the former court orchestra, that was considered to be the best ensemble of its kind in the period of Dresden’s cultural flowering and that assembled the most prestigious instrumentalists of its time. Three centuries later, the Dresden Festival Orchestra unites international specialists for historically informed performance practice from the finest early-music ensembles in Europe. The wide range of its repertoire and the creative power are the fundament of the unique fascination that is evoked by this ensemble. With great joy of discovery, precision and a keen sense for authentic interpretations, the Dresden Festival Orchestra explores the original sound of various epochs.
