Ensemble Volcania

Every moment on stage can be made into magic: this is Ensemble Volcania’s core belief. The international musician-adventurers of the ensemble led by Elisabeth Champollion and Franciska Anna Hajdu find glamor, heat, and joy in the scores of Vivaldi, Bach and other past masters – and commission compelling new music from living composers, whose works draw on the intensity of baroque passions using the musical language of today.
In its work, the ensemble places connection in the foreground: that of the musicians to the music, potentially leading to a different musical result each evening; and of the musicians to the audience, sparking the unique excitement of live performance.
