Concierto Ibérico

Spanish music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods and their influences on all of Europe are the focus of the work of our ensemble Concierto Ibérico.
We play this music on various historical instruments, with each musician mastering several wind, keyboard or plucked instruments; entirely in the spirit of the historical sources, where for this repertoire the term "all kinds of instruments" is often used. Occasionally we also work together with dancers or singers.

The StattReisen concert series plays in Bremen.

City tour with concert

When the ensemble Concierto Ibérico plays on many different historical instruments for a guided tour of the city, there won't be a dry eye in the house. Together with this young quartet, experience old Bremen in a whole new way: with historical facts, curious stories - and the lively music of the real town musicians of past centuries!

Duo GlossArte

GlossArte has its origins in Diego Ortiz' Tratado de Glosas in the 16th century. The ensemble around the trombonist from Bremen Juan Gonzalez Martinez first dealt with the Rennaisance music in Spain and Italy. Following in the footsteps of their musical predecessors, they then explored the Italian and Spanish influence in the rest of Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. GlossArte is always on the lookout for the original sound of the respective time and region. The musicians of the ensemble play on various original historical instruments or their replicas.

Franz Kuhn Trombone Quartet

Franz Kuhn Trombone Quartet

The Franz Kuhn Trombone Quartet was founded by Juan González Martínez and consists of specialists in historical trombone instruments. The quartet has at its disposal a complete set of trombones (alto, tenor and two bass trombones) from the 1920s by Franz Kuhn. At the same time, the musicians are studying the historical-romantic style of playing, especially on the basis of notes and copies from the estate of Paul Weschke (1867-1940).

Weckmann Consort

The ensemble Weckmann Consort was founded by the musician and organ builder Lea Suter together with Juan Gonzalez Martinez (trombonist from Bremen). In their engagement with historical instruments, the two deal with the original sound. Between sacred and secular music, they move completely in the tradition of the city musicians at the time of their namesake and Hamburg Jakobi organist Matthias Weckmann.

Instruments

Kuhn trombone

Pupils of the court instrument maker in Elberfeld Leopold Mitsching (1865-1922) Franz Kuhn (?-1955) worked in his workshop and together with the trombone virtuoso Serafin Alschausky (1879-1948) conceived a trombone model of German Romantic design. It quickly spread throughout Germany. This model was further developed by Kuhn and is still handmade today in Bremen by the brass instrument making company Herbert Lätzsch as the "Kuhn model". The Franz Kuhn Trombone Quartet plays an original 1920/30s Kuhn trombone set (ATBB).

Orgelpunkt - Trombone and Organ

In the past year GlossArte has intensively dealt with the Baroque period. This has resulted in a CD, including first recordings of various works on the historic Sauer organ (1928) in the great hall of the Glocke, Bremen's concert hall from 1926, together with the historic Franz Kuhn trombone (1920). These are not only works recorded for the first time, but also original preserved historical instruments recorded for the first time as a duo and in a quartet.
