Die größte Kunst ist Geld zu machen (The greatest Art is making money)
… so it says in one of the songs from Georg Philipp Telemann’s “Singing, Playing and General Exercises” from the year 1733. Along with other themes, like luck, life, Women, Men, worries, and contentment, all still seem relevant today. The Cambiamento Ensemble, led by Jürgen Beyer, has taken some modern inspiration, rearranged various pieces by Telemann. The musicians, who feel at home both in baroque music and in jazz, combine their styles in an entertaining and amusing manner with their reinterpretations.
The ensemble was founded on the occasion of the restoration of the Ribbeck altar of the village church of Großglienicke in 2013. In this context the first CD “I love art and fresh courage” – music from teutschen Landen around 1680 was created. The focus is on the interpretation of works of early Baroque, including rarely played pieces, new discoveries and own arrangements. In the “Baroque-meets-Jazz” -project, with new arrangements of the songs from the “singing, playing and general exercises” by G. Ph. Telemann, we are deliberately looking for styles and cross-bordering challenges. The ensembles are adapted to the respective projects.
