Audacious, innovative, and adventurous, the Geneva Camerata is composed of the most virtuoso and creative soloists of the young generation. Praised by the press as one of today’s most fascinating ensembles, GECA performs music of all periods and styles, from early baroque, classical and contemporary repertoire to electronic, jazz, rock, and world music. Presenting more than forty concerts per season in Switzerland and on many international tours, the Geneva Camerata also creates eclectic projects featuring contemporary dance, theatre, video, and visual arts.
Led by conductor David Greilsammer, GECA collaborates with today’s most prestigious soloists, such as Emmanuel Pahud, Andreas Scholl, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Steven Isserlis, Daniel Hope, Véronique Gens, Sandrine Piau, Avi Avital, and Viktoria Mullova. This season, the Geneva Camerata performs with singers Anne Sofie von Otter, Ian Bostridge, Measha Brueggergosman, and Véronique Gens, violinists Christian Tetzlaff and Nemanja Radulovic, cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras, and jazz artists Didier Lockwood, Tigran Hamasyan and Yaron Herman.
GECA’s recent touring has brought the orchestra to Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, La Coursive Theatre in La Rochelle, Radial System in Berlin, Montreux Jazz Festival, Gstaad Sommets Musicaux Festival, Sanat Hall in Istanbul, Centro Nacional de las Artes in Mexico City and Morelia Music Festival. This season, the Geneva Camerata makes its debut at the Berlin Philharmonie, and performs at the NCPA in Beijing, Oriental Art Center in Shanghai, Musée d’Orsay in Paris, Kings Place in London, Eilat Music Festival in Israel, and Istanbul Music Festival.
Geneva Camerata’s debut album will be released internationally in 2017 by Sony Classical. It will feature a groundbreaking programme with jazz pianist Yaron Herman, in which baroque, classical, jazz, and contemporary works meet and converse, offering an unexpected musical dialogue.
