About Us

Das Neue Mannheimer Orchester (DNMO) was established in late 2016 in The Hague by fortepianist Anders Muskens and harpsichordist Beniamino Paganini with the aim of recapturing the spirit of music from the late 18th century.

The DNMO plays on period instruments using historically informed techniques. We are committed to challenge established boundaries and conventions of the Classical Music world with the goal of rekindling the passion of 18th century performances.

L’isoletta di cigni - Baroque Chamber Cantatas

Featured Chamber Soloist Ensemble

L’isoletta di cigni is an early music ensemble that is part of Das Neue Mannheimer Orchester Chamber Soloists. Formed in late 2017 in The Hague, the ensemble seeks to revive the lush repertory of early to mid 18th century Baroque chamber cantatas with an obligato traverso and basso continuo. Baroque chamber cantatas, regularly heard in the private chambers of wealthy aristocrats, were penned by the greatest composers of the age, including George Frederic Handel, Johann Adolf Hasse, and Antonio Vivaldi. Essentially small-scale opera seria, they feature forms from the opera theatre, like declamatory recitatives and da capo arias. L’isoletta di cigni seeks to bring dramatic rhetoric alongside a commitment to historically-informed performance practice.
