Hannoversche Hofkapelle (Chamber Orchestra)

Founded: 1995 - Hannover, Germany

The Hannoversche Hofkapelle (= HHK, Hanoverian Court Orchestra), located in Hannover (Germany), remains totally faithful to the tradition of historic court orchestras and performs both chamber music and symphonies. The sound of this ensemble is hallmarked by the fact that the musicians also have experience of playing with different music ensembles on the European Baroque scene and view historical performance practices (see also: Historically informed performance) as a means of keeping current.

The repertoire of the HHK is not restricted to the many forms of Baroque music alone, but also includes classical works, with Mozart operas and the Romantic era being particularly favoured. Their constant involvement with 17th and 18th-century music has made the Court Orchestra musicians masters of their respective instruments. The result is the expressive and elegant style of playing that assures the orchestra its prominent position. The Hanoverian Court Orchestra has been the "orchestra in residence" at the Herrenhausen Festival Weeks since 2006.
