Kammerorchester Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (Chamber Orchestra)

Founded: 1969 - Berlin, Germany

Kammerorchester Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach Chamber Orchestra) (= CPEB) was formed in 1969. During its first ten years it concentrated on contemporary works, introducing many of them to the public. When Hartmut Haenchen became musical director in 1980, the emphasis shifted to works of the pre-classical period. It was as recently as 1984 that the orchestra opted for its current name. Using critical editions of old scores, it plays its repertoire on modern instruments, but gives due consideration to new insights into authentic performing practice.

The CPEB Chamber Orchestra has numerous radio and television productions to its credit, and it has made over 40 gramophone recordings, some of them singled out for international awards. The ensemble has toured extensively in Europe and Japan.
