Neues Kammerorchester Potsdam

August 25

The Neues Kammerorchester Potsdam is a free orchestral initiative that brings together dedicated musicians under the artistic direction of Ud Joffe.

Founded in 2000, the Neues Kammerorchester initially played exclusively for choral projects by the Potsdamer Kantorei and the Oratorienchor Potsdam.In March 2001, the orchestra presented itself for the first time in a symphony concert with Händel, Vivaldi and Beethoven.

Since then, the New Chamber Orchestra has won over audiences with a broad program ranging from the Baroque to the 21st century. The orchestra has successfully participated in film screenings with live orchestral accompaniment on several occasions.

The Neues Kammerorchester Potsdam conducted by Ud Joffe will accompany "Der Medicus" with music written for the film by Ingo Ludwig Frenzel, and for which he won the European Composer Songwriter Alliance (ECSA) award at the 2015 Berlinale. Bernd Wefelmeyer has reworked the music for the live orchestral version.
