Ensemble Vintage Köln, was founded in Cologne in 2009 as a period instrument ensemble. Special projects include the Rosary Sonatas of H.I.F. Biber, the complete Violin Sonatas by G.F. Handel, a staged version of Bach’s Cantata “Christ Lag in Todesbanden” and his “Musical Offering.” The musicians, who also teach at the Cologne University of Music and Dance, bring together decades of experience. Violinist Ariadne Daskalakis pursues a unique career on both modern and baroque violin, celebrating the gamut of the violin repertoire. Rainer Zipperling is sought after as cellist and gambist by ensembles including the English Baroque Soloists and the Bach Collegium Japan. David Bergmüller won the Franz Aumann Prize at the H.I.F. Biber Competition in St. Florian and has toured with Concentus Musicus, Ars Antiqua Austria and La Cetra. Michael Borgstede plays harpsichord, fortepiano and organ, appearing regularly as soloist and with the Ensemble Musica Ad Rhenum.
