Camerata Bern

Founded in 1962, the Camerata Bern is a highly-acclaimed chamber orchestra uniting top level musicians inspired by the idea of performing within a flexible, self-conducted ensemble.


Among its members are gifted soloists and chamber musicians. Under its artistic director, Grammy-award winner Patricia Kopatchinskaja, as well as guest concertmasters Antje Weithaas, Erich Höbarth, Amandine Beyer and others, the orchestra stands out for its subtle and homogeneous sound, its freshness and mastery of style in a broad repertoire ranging from early Baroque on period instruments to today’s composers.

The ensemble’s outstanding qualities has led it to perform with such eminent artists as Sol Gabetta, Heinz Holliger, Attilio Cremonesi, András Schiff, Alexander Lonquich, Jörg Widmann, Tabea Zimmermann, Bernd Glemser, Christian Gerhaher, Vesselina Kasarova, Radu Lupu, Barbara Hendricks, Peter Schreier, Reinhold Friedrich, Leonidas Kavakos, Angelika Kirchschlager and others.
