An ensemble that forms a perfect whole
„The FestspielOrchester Göttingen under the direction of Laurence Cummings is now one of, if not the, outstanding Baroque orchestras of the modern day, and possibly ever.“ (Sandra Bowdler, Bachtrack.com)
When once a year Laurence Cummings summons the players of the FestspielOrchester Göttingen – also affectionately known as FOG – something very remarkable happens. Coming from a host of different countries, these specialists in historical performance practice can hardly wait to make music together again, as is immediately apparent to audiences.
Critics praise the ensemble for their great range of tonal colour and light, flexible and sensuous sound. This results from the FOG players harmonising so well – musically and in general. In the evenings at the hotel where they stay, there is often spontaneous music-making and conviviality well into the night.
