Baroque has a name in Zurich

For more than 20 years now, the Opernhaus Zürich has had its own baroque orchestra under the leadership of Nikolaus Harnoncourt. The Orchestra La Scintilla is made up of the permanent members of the Zurich Opera House’s main symphony orchestra who play on historical instruments. Surprisingly, no conductor has been assigned as artistic director until now. Riccardo Minasi, who has just been chosen for this position, will be the first ever director of La Scintilla alongside Gianandrea Noseda, the general music director.
