NPU

NIEUWE PHILHARMONIE UTRECHT



In a time when a lot of orchestras disappeared, the Nieuwe Philharmonie Utrecht started in Utrecht, a city who had no orchestra at the time. The orchestra makes a difference in the choice of instrumentation and repertoire. Their philosophy of early music is the same as Nicolaus Harnoncourts definition: "Early music is all the music by composers who are not among u anymore". Johannes Leertouwer, violinist and conducter of the NPU, is also the artistic director and puts together programs that invites the audience in to the music of past centuries. In a lot of cases Leertouwer gives lectures himself during or before the concert, to present a deeper understanding of the repertoire.

More information about their projects can be found on their website.
