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. Jadran Duncumb is very active as a continuo player performing with various European ensembles as well as being in demand as a soloist specialising mainly in repertoire for the baroque lute and baroque guitar. He is a memeber of Barokkanerne and Oslo Circles. Michael Borgstede plays harpsichord, fortepiano and organ, appearing regularly as soloist and with the Ensemble Musica Ad Rhenum.
