Kammerakademie Postsdam


Antonello Manacorda


A powerful musical collective with historically informed and modern performance practice is the trademark of Kammerakademie Potsdam. Together with Antonello Manacorda, the orchestra’s conductor since 2010, KAP has made a name for itself with high artistic quality, stylistic interpretation, diverse programming and refreshing musicality. Founded in 2001, Kammerakademie Potsdam is the resident orchestra of Potsdam’s Nikolaisaal as well as the leading chamber orchestra in the state of Brandenburg. In 2015, the orchestra was awarded the ECHO Klassik prize in the “Ensemble/Orchestra of the Year” category for its recording of Franz Schubert’s Symphonies Nos. 2 & 4.

With this new recording the orchestra and their conductor take on Mendelssohn’s sunny and popular Fourth Symphony, the “Italian,” alongside the composer’s energetic First Symphony, composed when Mendelssohn was only 15 years old.

“In the last few years the Kammerakademie has grown into one of Germany’s best chamber orchestras.” - WDR

“The Kammerakademie Potsdam is hilarious, with joyful storytelling and teeming with vitality. Potsdam has a sound of the highest quality. Their regular radio broadcasts and concert invitations prove this beyond a doubt.” - Märkische Allgemeine Zeitung
