Musica Antiqua Salzburg

 

Musica Antiqua Salzburg (MAS) is an instrumental ensemble that focuses on the performance of early music on period instruments.

It creates a professional platform in Salzburg for internationally performing artists who have made themselves known though successful collaborations with well-known conductors and orchestras or as soloists on the concert podiums of the world.

MAS focuses on instrumental consort music of the early baroque with sackbuts and cornets, supported by basso continuo in various settings, but also on larger instrumentations with winds and strings. Another main emphasis is the large repertoire of vocal music of these periods, which reaches from solo to large choral works.

The ensemble’s main emphasis is on Salzburg's rich history and musical diversity: the baroque Salzburg with composers such Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, Paul Hofhaimer, Johann Stadlmayr or Georg Muffat.

On the other hand, it is dedicated to the diversity of Italian (Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Biaggio Marini, etc.) and German (Heinrich Schütz, Michael Praetorius, etc.) baroque music, as well as baroque music from various other European countries.

Since its foundation in 2010, MAS looks back on several successful projects and engagements, such as the festival opening ceremony of the Salzburg Festival, Musik Sommer Millstatt, Kirchenkonzert-Reihe in St. Leonhard, Original Klang Freistadt, or Alte Musik im Schloss Linz.

Recent highlights include the performance of the Schrattenbach Requiem by J.M. Haydn at the Diabellisommer Mattsee, as well as the Marienvesper by C. Monteverdi in the Munich Herculessaal.
