La Stagione Frankfurt (Instrumental Ensemble)

Founded: Frankfurt, Germany

The orchestra La Stagione Frankfurt or La Stagione Consort (= LSF) has for many years been counted among the most successful ensembles in the field of authentic music performance.

The versatility of the ensemble's director Michael Schneider on the one hand and the artistic flexibility of each of the musicians on the other, enable a convincing and authentic performance of a wide spectrum of works from the areas of baroque opera and oratorios through classical symphonic works to the performance of important pieces of the 20th century.

It is the discovery and performance of lesser known musical gems by composers such as F.I. Beck, A. Stradella, A. Scarlatti, I. Holzbauer and the sons of Bach coupled with the stimulating and authentic interpretation of the standard repertoire which characterises the artistic intention of La Stagione.

Performing regularly with well-known vocal and instrumental soloists, the invitations to important European festivals and concert venues as well as the numerous highly regarded recordings attest to the high reputation of La Stagione Frankfurt.

La Stagione Frankfurt is generously supported by the Ministry for Culture and Science of Hessian.
