German delight!

‘German delight!’ – music that touches the heart and lifts the mind

The Apollo Ensemble plays Bach, Händel and Telemann
David Rabinovich & Daphne Oltheten, violin
Thomas Oltheten, bassoon
Marion Boshuizen, harpsichord

A lot of music was not written for big occasions, but rather to be played in a small circle, at home, with friends and colleagues. Music for ‘Kenner und Liebhaber’, as Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach would call it. Precisely because this music was not intended for a large audience and was often performed by colleagues, composers were able to indulge themselves and pull out all the stops.
The Apollo Ensemble musicians retreated in their homes while a dangerous virus caused havoc in the outside world (as if they were characters in Boccaccio’s Decamerone). They did the obvious thing, a thing that made them happy again: they played music together. Music by Bach, Handel and Telemann, composers whom they now know better than their own mothers. And so this program was born with that wonderful music that touches the heart and uplifts the mind.

    The former reformed church in Ens (built in 1953) is the responsibility of Flevoland Heritage ( and is, in addition to being a beautiful location for chamber music, also worth a visit as a church.
