Arrival and Farewell

Hofkapelle München
Rüdiger Lotter (Violin and Conductor)

Prince electors are long gone in Munich – but the Hofkapelle München is an integral part of musical life in Bavaria, even without a crowned ruler. The original sound ensemble, founded in 1992 under the leadership of the Baroque violinist Rüdiger Lotter, aims to bring to life the rich music scene between 1600 and 1850. One of the most important composers in the sphere of influence of the historical Münchener Hofkapelle was Christian Cannabich, who was considered a “good friend” by Mozart. Even before Mozart and Cannabich had sealed a friendship in Mannheim, Wolfgang Amadeus composed his opera “La finta giardinera,” already showing with its bright, cheerful ouverture the refinement of the 18 year old. Haydn’s famous “Farewell” Symphony was created only three years before, and is linked to one of the loveliest anecdotes in music history.
