Ensemble Phoenix Munich (EPM) was established in 2003 by Joel Frederiksen, leading early music specialist, after moving to Munich, Germany. The ensemble is heir to Mr. Frederiksen`s previous group, L`antica musica New York (1989-2001) which toured America and ran a successful concert series at St. Bartholomew's Church on Park Avenue in New York City. Since 2007, the group has presented a concert series in Munich at the Bavarian National Museum and performed at leading international festivals. EPM recorded four successful CDs with harmonia mundi France and now records for SONY / DHM.
EPMs programing reflects the wide-ranging interests of its founder and director, Joel Frederiksen, presenting music from the European Renaissance and Baroque (c1500-1650) to Early America (c1800-1900).The ensemble has even commissioned new works.
The ensemble regularly performs from original facsimiles, uses historical instruments and tunings appropriate to country and time period, and adheres as closely as possible to recent research regarding all aspects of interpretation. At the same time, the ultimate goal in performance is meaningful communication with the audience. Ensemble Phoenix Munich programs are engaging and seek, to use the Baroque expression, to reach and to move the "affections" of the listeners.
