Die Telemänner, Jugend-Barockorchester der GEDOK Stuttgart e.V

 

Founded in 2008, the Youth Baroque Orchestra „Die Telemänner“ have acquired a name for performing baroque music with a modern twist. Inspired by the music from the baroque era, the young musicians bring together original baroque music and modern music. The ensemble is ambitious to show links between baroque and modern music and has also developed modern percussion concepts and arrangements for original baroque works. During the last years, many modern compositions have been dedicated to and premiered by this ensemble as well.

The ensemble was portrayed by the Deutschlandfunk (2008) as well as by the Hungarian radio Station MR4 (2010) with its conductor Steffi Bade-Bräuning. The ensemble was invited many times to perform at the baroque/ rokkoko castles of Ludwigsburg, Solitude (Stuttgart) as well as Schwetzingen. Concert tours took the ensemble to Budapest and New York City. In 2014, Die Telemänner performed at the renowned Musiikkitalo Helsinki, in cooperation with the Finnish Baroque Orchestra (FiBo).

The young musicians appeared in a production of the State Film Institute Baden-Württemberg in 2014 and 2015 (youtube “Geigenkrieg” and “Musikvideo-Fight”). Moreover, they won a second price at the European Music Festival at Neerpelt/ Belgium in 2015. It was the first time for the musicians to participate in a competition. At the State Orchestra competition of Baden-Württemberg they turned out among the best four ensembles of their category.

Die Telemänner play with baroque bows as well as on a spinet which is a copy of an instrument from the times of Elisabeth I. (www.gedok-stuttgart.de)
