"Camerata Köln is an ensemble devoted to baroque and classical chamber music, with a special focus on works with woodwind instruments.
Since its foundation in 1979, the ensemble has performed in almost all European countries and at important early music festivals such as the Internationale Festtage Alter Musik Innsbruck, Flanders Festival Bruges, Tage Alter Musik Herne, Arolser Barockfestspiele or Tage Alter Musik Köln.
