"But now faith, hope, love, ... but love is the greatest among them." The Bible quotation has always inspired artists. The ensemble Wunderkammer draws its well-known, idiosyncratic musical conclusions from this: German sacred vocal works of the 17th century are juxtaposed with sonatas by Dario Castello (before 1600 - around 1658), each of which interprets the quotation in its own way. Wunderkammer was founded in Berlin in 2014 by Sarah Perl (bass viol/violone), Mira Lange (harpsichord), Martin Seemann (cello) and Peter Uehling (harpsichord/organ). Together the musicians dedicate themselves to chamber music of the 17th and 18th century whose Old Masters they explore over and over with boundless curiosity, and to the interpretation of contemporary compositions. The ensemble also works in various orchestra formations, such as in the recording of J.S. Bach's Markus-Passion BWV 247. The musicians also perform with renowned ensembles.
