„... the ‘living interpretation’ is an excellent one. The Berlin Camerata, now in its sixth year, plays conductorless with one player per part and with crisp ensemble and intonation, lends a restrained beauty to the weighty slow movements, virtuoso dexterity to the finales, and grace and charm to the galant phrases of the B flat major concerto.
This is a recording of well-judged balance and notable clarity…“
The Strad about our last CD / „The Bach“
„Graceful and gentle, fast and prancing“
Leipziger Volkszeitung
„...In the chamber music hall of the Berliner Philharmonie the violinist Olga Pak and the Berliner Camerata performed a most impressive concert: balanced, rich and colourful, it was one of the most elegant and interesting performances of the works of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Founded in 2009, the Berliner Camerata proved to establish itself without any subsidies. But instead of trying to convince with glamourous effects they surprise their audience by performing with a profound knowledge of the compositions and a technical mastery of their artistic demands.“
Der Tagesspiegel

Since its foundation in 2008, the Berlin Camerata represents high-quality classical music for sophisticated connoisseurs. This young, internationally staffed orchestra is directed by the exceptional violinist Olga Pak. Several factors are decisive for the choice of the orchestra members: Besides their musical excellence, the joy in playing music and their ability to work in a team are highly valued characterics.
The self-conception of the Camerata is that of a union shaped by the different contributions of its musicians. The orchestra aims at giving each of its members the possibility to influence the artistic process at anytime be it in a programmatic way by suggesting new compositions for the repertory or by taking over a solo part. This way of working allows for individual progress in mutual artistic inspiration. It is what distinguishes the Berlin Camerata from many other orchestras.
The orchestra‘s repertory comprises popular classical pieces as well as modern compositions. It seeks to pass on its enthusiams for classical music to both, adepts and novices to the classical world. The Berlin Camerata debuted was at the Oslo Konserthus in 2008. It was the beginning of a successful tour around some of the most beautiful concert halls, cathedrals and churches all over Europe.
In the past years, the orchestra established itself on two levels: On the one hand, the increasing number of concerts enabled the Camerata to tie a number of regulars to themselves. These musicians fulfill the requirements of the orchestra on a level of virtuosity as well as on an interpersonal level.
On the other hand, they succeeded in creating a continous collaboration with a row of prestigious musicians such as Guy Braunstein, Avi Avital, Mark Gothoni, Kirill Troussov, Yorck Kronenberg, Giuliano Sommerhalder, Pacho Flores, Gerd Albrecht or John Schlaefli arisen since unforgettable concerts. In addition to its own concert series in Berlin (Philharmonie), in Hamburg (Laeiszhalle) and from 2014 in Leipzig (Gewandhaus), the Orchestra is also the organizer of the »Berliner Klassiksommer«.
Guest performances in Gasteig Munich, the Liederhalle Stuttgart and many other prestigious concert halls of Germany are regularly on the program of the ensemble. On international tours, the orchestra breathes new life into the European classical operation.
In the upcoming season 2015/16 the Berliner Camerata will do next to there season at the Berlin Philharmonie, Gewandhaus zu Leipzig and Hamburg Laeiszhalle, the debut at the Wien Musikverein and Tonhalle Zürich. in April the orchestra is touring south america, in june, juli the Orchestra will to there traditional tour to Norway and France and in august and september the Camerata will host again the Berlin classic Festival „5th Berliner Klassiksommer“ In Mai under the direction of Prof. Peter Hörr the Camerata will record there first orchestra CD at the Label Dabringhaus & Grimm.

Germanyorchestral experience – jazz meets classical

STUDNITZKY has always been a traveller between the realms of jazz, classical and electronic music. With “MEMENTO – orchestral experience” he presents his multifaceted and stylistically open nature with entrancing succinctness.

Accompanied by the Berliner Camerata and guests, he celebrates a fascinating and emotional journey on trumpet and piano. In his inimitable music not a single note is superfluous. It is detailed, minimalistic and transparent, yet it displays an emotional depth which is uniquely personal.
With this distinctive sound, STUDNITZKY stands pleasantly apart from the typical classical/jazz crossover style. Too edgy for pop, too emotional for jazz, too opulent for electronic music, and with a rhythmic groove far removed from avant-garde, he has created something that is refreshingly new.

“Sebastian Studnitzky is a sound aesthete … You find yourself wanting more of this tranquil and unpretentious chamber music.” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
