Symposium für Historischen Tanz
Burg Rothenfels am Main

Our music ensemble 2022

A special highlight of the symposium is the conference's own music ensemble, which we have newly assembled for the 2022 symposium. It accompanies workshops, short performances, dance evenings and the festive ball. The ensemble thus enables the presentation of previously unpublished, unrecorded material, advises on musical issues and contributes significantly to the success of the various contributions with its lively interpretation.

Music ensemble "TripleTime

Under this title, four musicians from several nations have come together who have already made a name for themselves in various ensembles in the field of early music and historically informed performance practice. Thanks to their great stylistic flexibility, they are very much at home in the music of three centuries, from the early 17th to the 19th century. All musicians have also been active in the field of historical dance and thus form the ideal line-up to accompany the various workshops and dance evenings of the symposium with verve and sensitivity, whether in branles, courantes, allemands, country dances, cotillions or quadrilles. When they finally play for us to dance at the festive ball on Saturday evening, hardly anyone will remain sitting still...
