Season: 2021 • 2022
3, 2, 1 go: New season, new website! From now on, our motto is:
Spot on Early Music!
Enjoy discovering the 2021/2022 season. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made the relaunch possible: Our graphic designer Maya Arber, our photographer Guillaume Perret and our programmer Higi Bigler, as well as the generous supporters of the new corporate design, especially Pierre-Yves Perrin and Marc-Henri Jordan.
Please note the current protection measures.

Since 2008, photographer Guillaume Perret has accompanied us with his unmistakable artistry on our journey from the freshly born orchestra to the future. We are very happy to see the unique trouvailles from this loyal collaboration slumbering in our archives. Our new home-page provides an insight into the most recent shootings. Thank you Guillaume for your great work!
Live recordings from the concert hall
The joy of dance: Les Passions de l'Âme play Bach's suites
No audience in the church hall, but a row of microphones on and in front of the stage. The French flutist Anne Parisot imagined each microphone as the face of a concert-goer and – voilà ! – the emotions was there. Almost like a real concert.
Les Passions de l'Âme at the Habsburg Court
For almost 300 years, Angelo Ragazzi's mass, the "Missa tertia Carolus Sextus", lay dormant in an archive in Vienna. Les Passions de l'Ame breathed fresh life into it in Bern in summer 2018.
