Festival Kvarner: concert by Cembaless ensemble

13.08.2021. - 13.08.2021. / Opatija


Cembaless plays boldly, joyfully and passionately a hymn to life, expressing emotions between the extreme polarities that human life offers. With exciting arrangements and grooves, Cembaless seeks to create spirited interpretations of early music that beat the pulse of the times!

Cembaless was founded in 2014 and consists of the concert soloists Shen-Ju Change, Stefan Koim, David Hanke, Annabell Opelt, Elisabeth von Stritzky, Syavash Rastani and Robbert Vermeulen.

The ensemble is innovative, passionate and sensitive in its arrangements, always finding new ways to design their concerts, both aurally and spatially. Cembaless invites their audience into its own soundscape, bringing together fiery, thrilling and lively rhythms with intimate feelings.

Their success is proof of the magical moments they create on stage; for example, they have been awarded the Audience Prize at the Biagio-Marini-Competition 2015, the Audience Prize at ZAMUS-Spielweise 2016 and the Audience Prize and Grant at the Saarland Radio and the Academy of Early Music in Saarland 2017. In 2019, the ensemble was accepted into Eeemerging+, the European promotional program for early music.
