This is achieved through the “Speaking Style”, which has its roots in Rhetoric. Use of Rhetoric opens up the colourful world of Affect, these days described as the world of feeling. Accademia Amsterdam was founded in 1990 by oboist Onno Verschoor. It consists of musicians educated in the tradition of authentic performance practise, who regularly perform with the most famous European Baroque orchestras. The ensemble gives concerts in the Netherlands and abroad, and has recorded the successful CD “A Choice Collection of Dances”.
Frequently, they set up special projects, working with chamber choirs and dance companies. Accadmia Amsterdam was guest of honour at the 2006 festival in Solomeo, Italy. Accademia Amsterdam initiates a project, about Handel's teacher F.W. Zachow which includes the execution and recording of all his rarely performed cantatas. In 2009 the first CD was released with (Christmas) cantatas from this forgotten composer.
This CD is for sale in the shop on this website. Since the summer of 2010 musicians of Accademia Amsterdam give an annual summer course for music in beautiful historic locations in Perugia (Italy).
