Barocke Sinneslust interprets and performs Baroque vocal chamber music of the utmost virtuosity. Under the direction of its founder and producer, Katrin Küsswetter, Barocke Sinneslust features different and sometimes unusual line-ups of renowned musicians and much sought-after soloists. Imbued with an unmistakable baroque joie de vivre, their concert performances are a rousing musical experience. With wit, enthusiasm and an eye for detail, the ensemble brings the characteristically metaphor-rich works of the baroque period to life, making their musical imagery virtually tangible to its audiences.

Funded by a German Music Council scholarship, the ensemble recorded and released their CD, Arias & Motets - Last Heroes, in late 2022. The album is a collection of Italian secular Baroque motets, and is the first complete recording of the early classical composer Giuseppe Giordani’s entire Otto Arie Sacre. Upon its release, the album was met with resounding success. Thus, a second edition of Arias & Motets - Last Heroes soon followed. It was released by the Leipzig label Rondeau ® in autumn 2023, less than a year after the first edition.

Barocke Sinneslust’s various other concert projects have been supported by the Bavarian Musicians' Association and the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and Art.

Shortly after the Corona pandemic, the Classic meets Jazz ensemble was started. Although the two genres of classical and jazz differ distinctly, through a very skilled and deliberate artistic process, this ensemble fuses the very best of both. In a kind of controlled ‘meltdown’, the ensemble isolates the essence of each genre, and subsequently utilizes the unleashed in this process to fuse them.

The line-up of Classic meets Jazz brings together musicians who are all masters of their own genres. The classically trained singer Katrin Küsswetter and the classical flute player Christina Bojin, collaborate wonderfully with three seasoned jazz musicians, namely Peter Adamietz on piano, Tobias Kalisch on bass, and Florian Bührich on percussion & vibraphone.

With cultivated irreverence, the ensemble traverses musical boundaries from Renaissance music to Latin and percussive blues, illustrating how the floating sound of the transverse flute and the individuality of the human voice can be perfectly complemented with percussive grooves and shuffles.
The ensemble delights its audiences with daring adaptations and ‘distortions’ of famous works by John Dowland, Monteverdi and Purcell, for example, along with numbers by such jazz greats as George Gershwin and Chick Corea. The outcome is a music which illustrates diversity in its entire spectrum.
Original compositions also complement the new program “Purcell goes Gershwin,” which has been received with great enthusiasm by the press and audiences alike. The program also been sponsored by the Bavarian Tonkunstlerverband and the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and Art.
