ノイマイヤー・コンソート Neumeyer Consort

The Neumeyer Consort is an ensemble for early music.


It was founded in 2007 with the aim of making the liveliness and versatility of baroque music audible in different instrumentation options. Thus, depending on the concert program, the diversity of the Neumeyer Consort ranges from a chamber music formation to a large-scale baroque orchestra. The name goes back to Fritz Neumeyer, one of the pioneers of historical performance practice. The artistic direction is in the hands of co-founder Felix Koch. The managing director is Markus Stein.

In addition to the lively concert activity at home and abroad, the Neumeyer Consort is also committed to a pedagogical mission. Since 2007 it has been "ensemble in residence" at the international master classes "Singing Summer" at the Mainz University of Music. In addition, the founding members of the ensemble have taken over the musical sponsorship of the orchestra "ConAffetto" of the Academy of Early Music in Saarland and were guests there as lecturers during the rehearsal and concert phases.

In 2010, the Neumeyer Consort Scholarship Academy was founded, which enables young up-and-coming musicians to make professional music together with the members of the ensemble on a project-by-project basis. In addition, the ensemble has developed several concert projects for children.

In addition to radio, television and CD productions, the ensemble has received concert invitations to the Days of Early Music in Saarland, the Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg, the Magdeburg Telemann Festival, the Gottingen Handel Festival, the Schwetzingen Festival of the SWR, the Rheingau Music Festival, the Alte Oper Frankfurt, South Africa (Cape Town, Stellenbosch) and the Norfolk Concerts in England.

In addition to the Neumeyer Consort, the Neumeyer Chamber Choir and the Neumeyer Chamber Choir were founded in 2008 as concert partners under the direction of Felix Koch. With the Gutenberg Chamber Choir of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, recordings of Johann Sebastian Bach's "Ascension Oratorio" and a newly reconstructed version of the "St. Mark Passion" BWV 247 were recorded.

Since 2020, the Neumeyer Consort has been working on a recording of all cantatas from the so-called "French Year 1714/15" by Georg Philipp Telemann. The vocal partner of this production is the professional ensemble "Gutenberg Soloists".
